Ok Kawang Engineering Co. (OKV), a Korean specialist valve supplier for the shipbuilding and offshore industry, is entering the US market.

Founded in 1988, OKV began supplying ultra-low temperature valves, high-temperature, and high-pressure valves at home and abroad through 30 years of research and development.

OKV’s flagship valve products are gate valves, globe valves, swing check valves, ball valves, and transformer valves. In addition, they also manufacture cryogenic valves mainly used in piping systems for storage and transportation of cryogenic fluids (LNG, LPG, N2, and O2).

OKV established the Enterprise Annex Laboratory in 2006, and succeeded in developing new high-pressure and cryogenic valves, endeavouring to improve quality. The company is focused especially on manufacturing excellent products through design (2D, 3D design and analysis) and verification, which are the foundation of manufacturing new valves.

OKV holds quality certificates, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, DNV MA, BV MA, ABS, LR, and KR, and has supplied its products to major global firms, including TOTAL, Shell, BP, ExxonMobil, and Chevron.

OKV, which started its business as a Korean shipbuilding and offshore valve company, played a key role in the development of the shipbuilding industry, and has announced that it aims to become a global onshore and offshore valve specialising company by focusing on new product development in the fourth industrial revolution.
