Valve World Americas features VAC in the Spotlight section of their December 2018 publication:
Spotlight on … Valve Accessories & Controls: Quality, Service & a Positive Attitude Matters
“As the ‘brains’ of the control valve package, this instrument is unique since it measures valve stem/actuator position and then performs a key function – it actually moves the control valve. Other instruments that measure flow, levels, etc. that only measure, they do not perform,” explained Wayne Fleming. “Most positioners are currently sold by major valve companies as an accessory. They use their large installed base of valves to sell their positioners and seldom market them as a stand-alone instrument. We are a unique company that has found solid success against the Goliaths of our industry. That is something that does not just happen – it is developed.”
VAC takes a very different position on the positioner market, by only marketing valve positioners and the accessories to support those primary products. Founded in 2001, VAC has built a strong business over the past decades with their European counterparts, producing a universal design that can be mounted and calibrated to a high percentage of any and all valves and actuators.
