The history of HP Valves goes back as far as 1879 when Dikkers Hengelo began manufacturing a wide range of industrial valves used in the era of steam-powered industrialization. In the century that followed, Dikkers built up a strong reputation for product quality and technical know-how.
HP Valves was founded as an innovative spin-off in 1981, combining the quality and know-how of Dikkers with modern, flexible production. Right from the start, HP Valves focused on the design and production of high pressure forged steel valves. In the years since then, designs have been improved and the product portfolio has expanded in size, pressure classes, and applications.
In June 2005, HP Valves became a subsidiary of Indutrade AB, a European group of companies organized into four business areas (Flow Technology, Engineering & Equipment, Industrial Components, and Special Products) all offering high-quality industrial niche products.
Pushed by strong growth, HP Valves moved to a new facility in 2006 and this factory was extended in 2008. Since then, major investment has taken place in CNC machinery and assembly and testing equipment to support 24/7 production and keep pace with growing demand.
Today, HP Valves is providing a complete range of medium and high-pressure valves from its newly-built facilities at the High Tech Systems Park in Hengelo (Ov), the Netherlands, which opened in September 2016.
