MERRIAM, KS—May 9, 2013IBT Industrial Solutions is now officially authorized to sell Norgren products in the states of Missouri, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Arkansas, and Kansas, as well as the northwest region of Texas.  IBT’s territory was previously limited to the Kansas and Nebraska area.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for IBT,” said Brent Hanson, the Fluid Power Business Group Director at IBT.  “We are very excited about the chance to expand our Norgren offerings to customers in these areas.”

Norgren Products
Norgren offers a wide variety of pneumatic and fluid control products, including:

  • Pressure switches
  • Regulators
  • Cylinders
  • Valves
  • Actuators
  • Pneumatic filters

Award-Winning IVAC
Norgren is also the producer of the award-winning IVAC, an integrated valve and actuator control that eliminates the complicated tubing of traditional actuators—while using the same basic footprint.  The IVAC has been reported to save up to 50% of energy consumption over the traditional actuator.

“The IVAC takes the traditional valve and actuator installation and massively simplifies it,” said Richard Bull, the Regional Product Marketing Manager for Norgren in the Americas.  “It takes all the components of the traditional system—as many as twelve different components—and wraps them up into one easy-to-clean, easy-to-install, easy-to-use unit.”

In April 2013, the IVAC was selected by New Equipment Digest magazine as a King Award Gold winner for superior industrial product innovation.  It took top prize in the “Motion Control” category for its reduced energy consumption, installation, and easy washdown.
