n Samson Controls known for work ethic, quality product STAFF REPORTS

Wherever there is a controlled flow of vapors, gases, liquids or chemicals, officials say, there also will be Samson Control Inc. representatives, working diligently and providing quality customer service. And that’s not just a local conceit. From Baytown to Ontario, Samson Controls Inc. — the United States subsidiary of Samson AG — is recognized for the internationally acclaimed quality of its product, according to officials. With what has been described as the most modern integrated automation systems, the company’s professional focus ranges from district hearing to air conditioning to globe, plus or butterfly control valve applications, according to officials. “Valves are built to order, tested and dispatched for delivery both nationally and internationally,” John Middleton, a company representative, relayed in a recent release. “Our in-house facilities enable us to respond quickly to customer requests and where possible dispatch valves the same day.” Samson Controls Inc is the name of two connected companies, one in Baytown and the other Ontario, which boast comprehensive inventories and assemble control valves and regulators for customers in the chemical, petrochemical,

pulp and paper, power, and food and beverage industries. The Baytown-based Samson Controls also offers products from the “Samson Group” — as Samson has formed affiliations with a series of companies also active in the field of valve engineering, but specializing in the production of different valves from those manufactured at Samson’s facilities. The company’s complete product line in instrumentation and controls offers the most modern integrated automation systems. This field of expertise extends through chemical plants and refineries, heating and air-conditioning technology (HVAC), power generation, pharmaceutical, and the food and beverage industry. “In addition to a very wide range of valves ... Samson also manufactures an extensive compliment of actuators, petitioners and instrumentation,” Middleton said in the release. The company is known for the “one stop shopping” it offers —- the full range of high quality and state-of-the-art control equipment in industrial processes. “Nationwide representation also ensures on site technical expertise and assistance in selecting the correct product for your application,” according to a separate release.
