Dixon Valve & Coupling Company, a manufacturer and supplier of hose fittings and accessories, recently announced the acquisition of Automated Design Services Inc. (ADS Controls) of Covington, Louisiana, USA.
The acquisition includes the product brands Outalarm (portable level alarms), Spillguard (automatic high level shutdown systems), and Batchguard (automatic batch control systems)–all of which will continue to be offered.
The acquisition of ADS Controls expands Dixon’s sensor technology to include capacitive and ultrasonic-type sensors. These products are suited for the loading of various liquid chemicals, which now join Dixon’s existing FloTech overfill detection products designed for loading petroleum products into cargo tanks, railcars and mobile tanks.
Manufacturing, sales, and technical service for all ADS products will be relocated to Dixon’s Bayco Division office in Cincinnati, Ohio.
