history

Certificados de Calidad de Valvospain

The VALVOSPAIN Group was created in year 2006 by the joining of LAZARO ITUARTE, FLUVAL and MTS.

These companies have a long tradition and experience in the design, manufacturing, testing and supply of high specification industrial valves.

LAZARO ITUARTE was set up in year 1.928 by Mr. Lázaro Ituarte, who coming from a Bilbao based family who was in the foundry and valve manufacturing business since 1.882, stablished by his own in Amurrio, manufacturing BOLTED BONNET GATE, GLOBE AND CHECK VALVES.

From the very early days LAZARO ITUARTE showed a strong orientation for the quality and for the export markets. In 1.967 LAZARO ITUARTE obtained the API 600 certificate issued by the American Petroleum Institute.

It also showed interest for the development of the designs and the technological innovation. In 1.982 LAZARO ITUARTE designed and supplied the first PRESSURE SEAL VALVES, used in the high pressure process of the refineries, and in the high pressure-high temperature steam services, in the power generation plants.

In 1.991 LAZARO ITUARTE designed and supplied the first CRYOGENIC VALVES for low temperature and cryogenic services, which lately developed to a complete range of Cryogenic Valves for LNG.

In 1.994 LAZARO ITUARTE obtained the ISO 9001 and API 6D certificates, which were also obtained by FLUVAL and MTS later.

FLUVAL was founded in 1.969, and it was oriented to the markets of England and Middle East. After having supplied a wide range of valves for Oil & Gas, in the last years FLUVAL has focused in the design and manufacturing of BALL valves, in all types, including metal-to-metal seats, and overlayed valves for sour services, were it has become an international reference.

MTS was founded in middele seventies, and it was focussed in the Spanish and South America markets. After supplying a wide range of valves for Oil & Gas, in the last years MTS has focussed in the development of PLUG, BUTTERFLY and CONTROL VALVES, and in especific applications of the CONCENTRATED SOLAR POWER and DESALINATION industries, becoming a worldwide reference.

In Year 2.006 the three (3) companies join together to create VALVOSPAIN. The integration is a start point, from which a new period of growth and expansion arrives, delivering the biggest projects.
