Our markets are anywhere heavy duty, high quality, and custom welded mobile hydraulic cylinders are required.

Currently, we sell to OE’s in the underground mining, construction, fire, nursery, forklift, and utility truck industries.

By utilizing our new lean manufacturing business model and access to high quality, low-cost parts, V&P is quickly becoming the supplier of choice for many equipment manufacturers!
Valves & Presses was founded in 1937 by Glen Manter in Delaware Ohio. It started out literally as a one-man machine shop making parts for motorized cranes. During the first five years, additional customers and machinists were added as needed. In 1942, big changes occurred. V&P (as it became known as) became heavily involved in the war effort, running three shifts a day, seven days a week making machined parts for motorized cranes, rollers, & graders. During the war years, V&P also started making custom hydraulic cylinders for that same equipment. In 1946, after the war, Mr. Manter decided that designing and manufacturing hydraulic cylinders for mobile equipment was to be the vision for the company in the future. To this day, this remains the focus of the company serving the mining, construction, fire, and nursery industries.
Valves and Presses, Inc was family-owned & operated for its first 68 years. Then, in April 2006, the company was re-organized as V&P Hydraulic Products, LLC. The new company is 50% owned by Valves & Presses Inc. and 50% by Propel LLC, a holding company.
