Velan Inc. and McJunkin Corporation, North America’s leading distributor of industrial pipe, valves and fittings have established a distribution arrangement for cast carbon, stainless and alloy steel gate, globe and check valves across the United States, with the exception of the Gulf Coast. McJunkin and Velan aim to bring a unique value proposition to the market for industrial valves. Velan will provide products to all McJunkin locations in the USA except for those in the Gulf Coast area. In that area, Velan will support McJunkin only in situations that are “enforced” by the end users. Where an end user chooses to use Velan, and selects McJunkin as the distributor, Velan will support McJunkin.
