Cameron will form a joint venture with the owners of Newmans, whose product lines include Newco, OIC, Cooper, and Quadrosphere branded valves and services. The joint venture will continue operating as Newmans.
According to Mark Cordell, President of V&M's Distributed Valves division, Newmans is poised to become the industry leader in the downstream valve market. "Newmans offers the most complete line-up of gate, globe, and check products, in addition to newer offerings of ball valves and triple-offset butterfly valves. Additional assets include a strong manufacturing presence in China, a network of well-run and strategically located branches, and a growing list of customer approvals.
