Strength and Security

Rawson was founded in 1954 with Industrial Controls being established in 1976. Although the two companies offered similar products, they were active in different geographies of the United States.

In 2009, a company called ERIKS (which was established in 1940 in Alkmaar, the Netherlands) was incorporated by SHV Holdings, a privately held family company. SHV invests for the long term, expanding and developing businesses and providing their customers with excellent products and services. SHV started business in 1896 as a coal-trading company.

Today, SHV has an impressive portfolio of companies: Mammoet, Nutreco, NPM Capital, Dyas, Makro, and SHV Energy, with:
  • 55,000 employees
  • A presence in 58 countries worldwide
  • Annual sales of $22 billion (or € 20 billion)

Being purchased by SHV catapulted ERIKS to begin to acquire more heavily in the North American market. In 2010, ERIKS purchased Rawson and, in 2011, ERIKS purchased Industrial Controls.

Innovative Flow Control Technology from Trusted Experts

We are pleased to announce that Rawson/Industrial Controls is the exclusive distributor for Clarke Valve products in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Texas, Oklahoma, and the greater Gulf Coast region. Rawson/Industrial Controls provides quick access to local product stock and expedited, high-level service support for Clarke Valve’s state-of-the-art Shutter Valve™ technology.

Using innovative design principles derived from the aerospace industry, Clarke Valve’s proprietary Shutter Valve™ technology enables oil and gas companies to slash valve fugitive emissions, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says are responsible for 60% of all the fugitive emissions in that industry, by 98%. It also offers lower total cost of ownership, reduced footprint, lower weight, and improved performance.
