GA Industries, Inc.
More than a century of quality and excellence...
GA Industries, Inc. was founded in Pittsburgh, PA in 1895 by Edward Golden and Charles Anderson as "Golden-Anderson Valve & Specialty Company." The earliest products were valves for boiler works and railroads.
The company grew by adding products and expanding into other markets. By 1956 the founders were deceased and the company was acquired by a small group of executive management who focused GA on the specialized needs of the growing municipal water and wastewater market.
In 1974 the company was re-named GA Industries, Inc. and in 1979 moved into new facilities in Cranberry Township, PA approximately 25 miles (40 km) north of Pittsburgh.
GA entered its second century in 1995. By then it had expanded its Cranberry facility several times, added another manufacturing plant 5 miles (8 km) away in Mars, PA and converted virtually all of its production to computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinery. GA also had established manufacturing licensees to serve certain international markets and expanded its product offering through new product introductions and acquisitions.
The high water mark in the history of GA Industries may well be the consolidation of GA Industries with Rodney Hunt Company (Orange, MA) in 1995. The union of these two renowned companies produced the world's most comprehensive product line of valves, sluice gates and actuation systems for water and wastewater control. While GA and Rodney Hunt maintain their own identity and operating facilities, the combination of product range, technical expertise, application experience and manufacturing capabilities is unmatched in the industry.
GA Industries enjoys an international reputation of being more than just a valve "manufacturer." Its competent team of problem solving application engineers and network of sales representatives work closely with consultants and specifiers to assist in the application of GA products. GA's engineers often employ computer modeling and analysis of system hydraulic data to aid in the valve selection process, especially for waterhammer, cavitation and other critical control applications.
