Rotork buys Skilmatic

Valve actuation specialist Rotork has bought the Skilmatic actuator business and assets from Skil Controls Ltd. Skilmatic actuators comprise a well established range of self-contained electro-hydraulic units that are particularly suitable for modulating and isolating fail-safe valve duties. The actuators dovetail neatly onto Rotork’s existing product range, enabling the advantages of electrical operation to be offered for an increased number of valve applications, such as control and emergency shutdown duties. As a Rotork product, the Skilmatic design will be further developed and marketed internationally. The acquisition is a further example of Rotork’s aim of providing customers with a single source for all aspects of valve actuation and valve accessories.
