Dixon - Introduction
The Dixon Valve & Coupling group that we know today have a wide range of innovative and high quality fluid related equipment for the petroleum & chemical industries.
The company was originally established in 1916 by Howard W. Goodall with the goal of designing & manufacturing the very best industrial valve & rubber hose couplings. The very first product that Dixon patented was the Rotary Hose Coupling in 1917 which over the years has developed further but the basic concept is still used today in high pressure oil drilling.
After more than 100 years, it is not surprising to find that Dixon products are found on every continent around the world and they continue to innovate and excel in their markets.
