The Humble Beginning of LA Valve Source
Serving you since 1994, with years of experience that have allowed LVS to reach high levels of customer satisfaction.
Louisiana Valve Source originated as a Gulf South locally owned and operated company in 1994. Initially focusing in the oil & gas industry, LVS realized years of success and was able to expand our business to become one of the leading providers of valves and valve services. This success inspired us to venture into other related areas such as pipeline transmission, chemical, petrochemical, steel, power, and pulp & paper.
At LVS we understand the importance of expanding not only our business but our team and expertise.
During the years of our company’s operation, we assembled a team of employees with years of experience that have allowed LVS to reach high levels of customer satisfaction within all of these new sectors. Development of this team included expansion into other locations with facilities in Port Allen, LA and Pasadena, TX. The knowledge and skills that our technicians possess exemplify LVS’s commitment to our clients and their needs.
Our customers’ requirements grew over time and LVS saw the need to advance our capabilities. This catapulted our company into the manufacturing industry. Louisiana Valve Source began producing an expanding gate valve (Sup-R- Seal) and a rotary control valve (LV690). These products joined our existing offerings to maintain our legitimacy as one of the largest independent repair and manufacturing facilities in the United States.
PON North America
At the height of our company’s existence, we again saw another opportunity to become something more. We caught the eye of an organization that prides itself in the people they employ and the businesses they promote. PON North America purchased Louisiana Valve Source in 2014 with high expectations of allowing our company to capture new goals and stretch our reach farther than even we had envisioned. It has been an exciting time that will continue far into the future.
