“A lot of companies preach customer service, but their actions don’t reflect it. That’s not the case when it comes to OCV. I have met many associates at OCV, from Plant to Sales to Engineering – all are focused on taking care of their customers. OCV is expedient in quoting projects and has even been known to troubleshoot valves from other manufacturers and construct valves in an emergency to get a city out of a jam. OCV practices what they preach!”
