CHANDLER, Ariz. - Hunt Valve Company (Hunt Valve), a specialty valve engineering and manufacturing company serving the United States Navy and industrial customers worldwide, announced today that it has completed its acquisition of Pima Valve.

Pima Valve supplies severe-duty bronze marine valves. The company also has a large variety of special bronze and alloy steel products that meet specific performance requirements for U.S., Canadian and NATO-friendly Navy ships and commercial marine applications.

“The financial and organizational resources afforded by Hunt Valve’s acquisition of Pima Valve underpins a strategic push toward high-performance, cost-effective manufacturing and technical know-how that will be a key part of the Navy supply chain in the coming years,” said David Bala, president of Pima and MB Valve, divisions of Hunt Valve. “Hunt has demonstrated through its acquisition and integration of MB Valve in March 2019 that they understand our business. The Hunt Valve team has deep bench strength in our industry. Combine that strength with what MB Valve and now Pima Valve bring to the table, and our customers will see the benefit in the long haul.”

Hunt Valve is a portfolio company of Chicago-based May River Capital, a private equity firm focused on lower middle-market industrial growth businesses. May River Capital completed a recapitalization of Hunt Valve Company in December 2018 by May River Capital Fund I, LP.
