In 1908, the first RegO® Products were designed for the gas welding industry. The name RegO® was derived from the words “Regulator” and “Oxygen”. In 1923, the RegO® line was established in the young, but promising, LP-Gas industry. RegO® Product engineers, in conjunction with LP-Gas marketers, pioneered the development of propane valves and regulators to meet the needs of the rapidly growing industry. The RegO® MultiValve illustrates our tradition of innovation. In the 1930s, the MultiValve® was designed to combine several valve functions in one unit. This made more practical tank designs possible – with fewer openings and smaller, less cumbersome protective hoods. Over the years, the MultiValve® has kept pace with the changing LP-Gas industry – continuing to keep tank fabricating cost down and reducing operating expenses for LP-Gas dealers. Other industry standards patented under the RegO® name include: Double Check Fill Valves, Pop Action Relief Valves, Chek-Lok Valves and the MultiBonnet.
RegO® Product Manufacturing
RegO® Products are manufactured at four facilities in the state of North Carolina, USA. At a 7,000 square meters machining facility, brass and ductile iron castings are crafted into product components.
Only the highest quality materials go into all RegO® Products. The machining operation utilizes robotics, automatic machining, and computer integrated manufacturing to achieve exacting standards.
After passing stringent quality controls, components go to one of two assembly facilities. A 9,300 square meters facility houses both assembly operations and the company’s corporate headquarters. The facility has an in house test laboratory, complete with a working tank farm and high pressure lines – allowing engineers to complete design and performance tests on site. Both assembly facilities are certified to ISO9001 by UL®. A new automated facility is dedicated solely to the production of Regulators. Following assembly, all products receive 100% testing for reliable performance.
Our Global Perspective
RegO® Valves and Regulators are sold by a network of distributors and agents throughout the United States, Canada, and over 100 countries around the globe.
In addition RegO operates GmbH, the RegO® Products European Distribution Center – supplying products to a network of authorized distributors throughout Europe.
Distribution Centers have also been established in the rapidly growing Latin America. OEM accounts in Mexico are serviced through a modern facility located in Monterrey, Mexico. Mercosur OEM accounts are serviced through a distribution center located in Uruguay. In 2008 a distribution center has been opened in Shanghai. This location serves as the local logistic center for all RegO Product sales in the region.
