The DeZURIK Difference

Throughout our 250 years of combined history, DeZURIK, APCO, and HILTON have been recognized worldwide for collaborating with customers to design and engineer valves that provide superior performance and value. Each company was founded by an innovator who set out to solve a customer’s problem application.  

DeZURIK’s founder, Matt DeZURIK, started designing products for the Sartell Paper Mill in 1925 that included knot boring machines, consistency transmitters and shower pipes. When he noticed that valves weren’t able to seal due to pitch build-up, he invented the first Eccentric Plug Valve – a design still in use today, dutifully solving sealing problems worldwide.

Today, the DeZURIK, APCO, and HILTON brands continue the tradition of partnering with our customers in the Pulp & Paper industry to provide the newest innovations in control, gate, plug, butterfly, automatic air and check valves. Our vision is to deliver exceptional value to our customers by applying our valve and problem-solving expertise to improve their operational performance.
