Peter France, CEO and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Ro­tork Con­trols.

Ac­tu­a­tor man­u­fac­turer and f low con­trol com­pany Ro­tork has ex­panded its range of in­stru­men­ta­tion prod­ucts with the ac­qui­si­tion of Young Tech Co (YTC).

YTC is a Kore­an­based, ISO9001 cer­ti­fied man­u­fac­turer of po­si­tion­ers and ac­ces­sories mainly as­so­ci­ated with pneu­matic valve ac­tu­a­tion.

YTC prod­ucts, in­clud­ing elec­tro-pneu­matic, pneu­matic and smart po­si­tion­ers, so­le­noid valves and I to P con­vert­ers, are widely recog­nised in world­wide f low con­trol mar­kets and in­dus­tries. In­ter­na­tional haz­ardous area cer­ti­fi­ca­tions in­clude ATEX, IECEx, and FM.

The ac­qui­si­tion of YTC, which will be­come part of the Ro­tork In­stru­ments Di­vi­sion, is in line with Ro­tork's strat­egy of ex­tend­ing its of­fer­ing of f low con­trol and pres­sure con­trol prod­ucts.

Ro­tork chief ex­ec­u­tive Peter France said: “YTC is an ex­cel­lent ad­di­tion to our In­stru­ments Di­vi­sion.

“It is a highly re­spected man­u­fac­turer of in­stru­men­ta­tion prod­ucts, which are com­ple­men­tary to Ro­tork's ex­ist­ing port­fo­lio of prod­ucts.

“This ac­qui­si­tion will en­hance our range of in­stru­men­ta­tion prod­ucts and fur­ther en­large our ad­dress­able mar­ket.”
