Conval, which manufactures high performance, severe-service forged valves, celebrated its 50th anniversary November 7.

The second-generation, family-owned business was founded by Chester “Chet” Siver in 1967. The company expanded its original 3,000 ft2 facility in Somers, Conn., several times, and two adjacent buildings have been built to increase Conval’s workspace to 50,000 ft2. The company is in the process of moving into a new 72,000 ft2 facility in spring 2018 to meet future demand for its products.

Conval serves end customers in the power generation, energy production, chemical, fertilizer, and pulp and paper industries as well as OEM boiler and turbine manufacturers.
