About Nitz Valve Hardware, Inc.

The people behind the products.

Nitz Valve Hardware, Inc. was established in 1984 by Jerry Nitz at his home in Sebewaing, Michigan. After working in the field for a few years, he saw the potential for an excellent business and has built Nitz Valve Hardware from the ground up. In 2012 Jerry purchased the facility we are now located in. Jerry retired from the business in 2003 and is now directed by his son Vince.

With more than 20 years in the business, Vince has a vast knowledge of valves and actuators. The Nitz's have built an extensive library of dimensional literature on valves, actuators, switches, positioners, etc., from nearly every manufacturer in the market. Nitz Valve Hardware fabricates an average of 15,000 plus kits per year, and has more than 150 years of combined manufacturing and engineering experience.


Currently, we have 10 milling machines three of which are CNC, and 4 lathes. We also have plasma cutting, welding, and broaching capabilities. NVH does not stamp or bend any of our mounting brackets. We have found these methods to have too high of a rejection rate, which raise product costs. Using the fabricating methods developed by the Nitz's we are able to use standard structural steel tubing for most of our mounting brackets, and have had a great deal of success doing so.
