Rotork adds rack and pinion actuators through acquisition
Rotork, the actuator manufacturer and flow control engineering group, has acquired the GTA Group, comprising of GT Attuatori, GT Attuatori Europe and Max Process.
GT Attuatori was established in 1963 and manufactures rack and pinion pneumatic valve actuators. The product range encompasses single and double acting actuators, solenoid valves, switchboxes and mounting accessories, providing packaged valve solutions for flow control applications in many industrial processes.
For safety critical duties, the actuators are available with SIL3 certification to IEC international standards 61508 and 61511.
‘The acquisition of GTA brings to us one of the longest established rack and pinion actuator manufacturers in our markets to enhance our range of available products,’ says Rotork CEO Peter France.
