description

 

 Westad’s factory today.

Westad Industri AS is a subsidiary of the Technor Group and a Norwegian manufacturer of high performance butterfly and ball valves for service in corrosive media, cryogenic temperatures and in other extreme operational conditions. The products are designed and tested to meet customer requirements within maritime, oil and gas and LNG applications.

Company History
Westad was founded in 1895 by Daniel Westad who recognized opportunities to supply the local pulp and paper industry with valves and accessories. He designed and patented his own products and won Gold Medal at the world exhibition in Stockholm in 1897. During the next half century Westad gradually shifted focus towards the maritime industry and, in the late 1960s, pioneered the use of butterfly valves on large tankers, moreover replacing traditional gate valves. In the mid 1970s, Westad introduced a cryogenic butterfly valve to be used onboard LNG tankers, and right up to today this product has served the industry and contributed to Westad’s position as a market leader in this segment.

During the 1970s, Westad also became established as a leading supplier of butterfly valves to the Norwegian oil and gas market in the North Sea.

New Markets
Westad still maintain production in Norway today, but the market has gradually moved to the Far East. Focus on quality, performance and ability to adapt to changes has ensured a leading position in niche markets.

With more than 1,000 large ships and offshore installations operating with Westad valves, the company looks forward to the future.
