History

Ozvalves was founded in 1970 by J.Krutsky (pictured) and M.Tucek manufacturing plastic valves and safety valves at their Gosnells Workshop.

They became a member of the Plastics Institute of Australia in 1974 and won the Australian design award for their range of push/pull valves in 1977. Joe Krutsky appeared in the West Australian in August of 1980 discussing how the original idea behind one of the safety valves followed him witnessing a near fatal gas main explosion. Ozvalves was an international exhibitor throughout Asia in the late 70’s and early 80’s.

Keith Wildsmith became a partner with Joe in 1998 and the business moved to the new Bedfordale site in 2004. Keith’s son, David also joined the company in 2004.Then in 2011, the business was sold to Chris Rayment, who maintains the same quality of product and service as his predecessors.
