For more than 90 years, CPV Manufacturing, Inc. has been at
the forefront of engineering innovation in valves and fittings.
CPV pioneered the O-Seal system concept and many other revolutionary
designs. Other manufacturers may try to imitate, but CPV's technology,
quality integrity and experience are the real thing. At CPV,
research and development are always centered on how well a new
product will solve a specific challenge. This means new designs
always start with customer needs and are never isolated from
the job they will be doing in the field.
philosophy began with CPV’s founder, Isaiah Engle.
Back in 1915, this enterprising farmer, who loved repairing his
neighbors' machinery, left Abilene, Kansas for Philadelphia and
opened a machine shop. Soon after, he began making pump valves
for large steam operating reciprocating pumps. To fix the problem
of leakage, Isaiah designed a revolutionary soft seat that increased
operating efficiency and durability.
The same principals prevail, and to this day we stay in frequent
dialogue with our customers, just the way Isaiah did with his neighbors.
At CPV, knowing what processes customers want to do faster, more
efficiently and at a lower cost is always the start point for new
or improved design and engineering.
