Control Devices innovates, designs, manufactures, and assembles the highest quality custom and standard valves and flow control devices that protect life and our planet.
Joseph Krechel founded Control Devices in his St. Louis garage in 1963 with the vision of creating the industry’s most innovative check valve and controls for air compressor OEMs. After nearly 45 years of growth and success spurred by Krechel’s innovative and forward-thinking principles, Control Devices was recognized as an industry leader.
Now, with the means to continue growing Krechel’s vision on a much larger scale, Control Devices has brought dedication and expertise into new industries and remains the trusted expert in flow control devices for manufacturers who place a premium on quality and who understand that every component contributes to product safety and their success.
In addition to the extensive selection of valves, Control Devices designs and assembles products and components for pressure washers, air compressors, fire suppression systems, vehicle systems, specialty gas applications, refrigeration, air conditioning, agriculture, and the food and beverage industries. Among many others, these include specialty valves, nozzles, condensate traps, and refrigeration distributors.
