History

Rencor Controls was founded in 1985 by Corey Simpson and Pat Herlihy; formerly regional managers for Fisher Controls’ Posi-Seal Division. Corey and Pat felt there was a need for high quality, quickly delivered Control and Automated Valves in the New England area. Most of the customers they spoke to felt that the products they purchased were good, but lacked the required response time (fast delivery to meet crucial schedule requirements), and of course, affordable pricing.

With this market strategy in mind, Rencor began the search to represent control valve companies ( Samson, Cashco, Velan, etc.) that had the same philosophy that the customer’s needs came first! The first product line that Rencor picked up was the Samson Control Valve line. A worldwide company that had started to expand its operations in North America and was driven by the same conviction to the customer’s concerns and needs as Rencor.

Since that time, Rencor Controls grew from 2 dedicated men to 10+ employees and more than $8,000,000 in sales in 2019. In March 2020, Rencor became a part of the Wolseley Industrial Group, bringing with them the expertise of valve automation, and customer base from the Northeast. Now part of a much larger team, Rencor becomes stronger.

Still operating under the name Rencor Controls, they still stand by the firm customer-first philosophy and continues to inventory and stock all of the products they represent.
