History & Company Values

The story of OCV began more than 70 years ago, when founder Tex Radford decided to expand his existing machine shop by designing and manufacturing control valves in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  He built this company with a vision of commitment to quality and reliability.  His mission was to produce a quality product in a quality work environment.  Since it’s modest beginning, OCV has maintained that vision while becoming a worldwide leader in the valve industry.  OCV supplies valves in some capacity to nearly every country in the world, within a variety of markets and in a multitude of applications.

OCV was founded on three strong principles:  Integrity, Honesty, and Fairness.  With these core values, the OCV brand sets the standard in the industry for excellence in quality and service.
