DVCC is a leading manufacturer of flow control products servicing customers across a range of industry segments including energy, mining, purity, steel, fire protection and marine.
In a company statement, Arctic Steel said it is excited by the acquisition as it will enable the Arctic Steel brand to continue to grow and expand under Dixon across global markets with a worldwide distribution footprint.
