Company Background

Preferred Valve & Controls was founded in 2009 by Wayne Price, who entered the industry in 1972 working in the valve shop at W-K-M. He spent nearly 27 years with one of the world's largest valve manufacturing companies and still serves as a consultant on the valve committee today. In 1999, Wayne pursued his lifelong dream of owning his own company and became one-third owner of a specialty valve and automation distributor covering the Southeast. Ten years later, Wayne branched off from his partners and went back to his roots with his own shop. After many blessings, including growth into a larger, brand new facility, he soon recruited two of his sons Michael and Jonathan, making Preferred Valve truly a family operation. At Preferred Valve & Controls the customers' needs are our priority.
