Valve actuation specialist Rotork (UK) has announced the acquisition of Remote Control Sweden. Remote Control Sweden has been trading since 1961 and, under the ownership of Per Larsson, the company has developed a worldwide reputation for quality and service as a manufacturer of pneumatic valve actuators and associated control systems.

Remote Control Sweden (RCS) is the latest acquisition in Rotork’s expanding Fluid Systems division, providing it with a range of complementary products and market opportunities. RCS products will continue to be marketed through their existing sales channels and integrated into Rotork’s extensive international sales network.

Commenting on the acquisition, Alex Busby, Managing Director of Rotork Fluid Systems said: “RCS complements Rotork’s existing medium to
heavy duty range of pneumatic and hydraulic actuators and brings with it a reputation for quality and service, strengthening our reputation as the actuator company of choice. The acquisition increases our ability to provide a single source for these products and enhances our presence in
existing and new market areas.”
