Dante Valve, a leading manufacturer of pressure relief valves, announces a new partnership with W&O Supply, the leading distributor in the shipbuilding and repair industry. This strategic collaboration will significantly enhance the availability and service of the Danco Valve product line across various regions.
Under the new partnership, W&O Supply will serve as a limited factory sales and service representative for Dante Valve’s Danco pressure relief valves. With their extensive network and expertise, W&O Supply will act as the exclusive distributor of these products to shipyards in the Gulf Coast Region (Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida) of the United States of America*.
Additionally, W&O Supply will also have exclusive distribution rights to the needs of the National Steel and Shipbuilding Company in San Diego, California; Marinette Marine in Marinette, Wisconsin and the entire region of Canada. W&O will serve the entire continent of Europe on a non-exclusive basis.
“We welcome this opportunity to join forces with such a key distribution leader within the shipbuilding and repair industry,” said Lisa Dante Papini, president and CEO of Dante Valve. “Our partnership with W&O Supply will further strengthen our companies’ shared commitment to distributing best-in-class valve products, with excellence in customer service, to our clients in the shipbuilding and repair industry across the world.”
Military-Specification (Mil-Spec) pressure relief valves play a critical role in ensuring the safe operation of naval and Coast Guard vessels by providing reliable and robust pressure relief capabilities for piping systems, boilers, and other equipment. W&O Supply describes valves as “the oft-forgotten essential,” key pieces of technical equipment that, if neglected, can lead to severe negative consequences for maritime operations.
Ensuring that valves are of high-quality material, meet the appropriate specifications for their use, and can be replaced properly when needed is critical to the continued smooth and safe functioning of global maritime infrastructure. Dante Valve and W&O Supply’s partnership emphasizes the importance of high-quality valve manufacturing and distribution to ensure safety in the maritime sector.
