Posted by Daniel Pishock on May 20th 2016

If you're contemplating choosing an ASCO solenoid valve, you need not to think about it too long; ASCO Valves should always be your number one choice when it comes to solenoid valve applications. Founded in 1888, ASCO has been around for well over a century, and is well known as a world-leader in solenoid valve technology and innovation. Originally known as a manufacturer of elevator, compressor, and generator controls, the company nonetheless kept an open mind regarding new directions, and in 1910, ASCO invented the very first solenoid valve. This electrically controlled device--a revolutionary brain-storm--changed the valve world forever, defining the ASCO corporation as the mark to which the competition should aspire.
