Dixon is a solutions-based provider, and we are excited to offer the chemical market more and better ways to solve their material handling and loading challenges.

Dixon Valve & Coupling Company, a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier of hose fittings and accessories, announces the acquisition of Automated Design Services, Inc. (ADS Controls) of Covington, Louisiana.

The acquisition includes the product brands Outalarm™ (portable level alarms), Spillguard™ (automatic high level shutdown systems) and Batchguard™ (automatic batch control systems) – all of which will continue to be offered.

The acquisition of ADS Controls expands Dixon’s sensor technology to include capacitive and ultrasonic-type sensors. These products are suited for the loading of various liquid chemicals, which now join Dixon’s existing FloTech® overfill detection products designed for loading petroleum products into cargo tanks, railcars and mobile tanks.

Manufacturing, sales and technical service for all ADS products will be relocated to Dixon’s Bayco Division office in Cincinnati, Ohio.

According to Robert Koeninger, general manager of Dixon’s Bayco Division, the acquisition of ADS Controls is a natural fit for the company. “Dixon is a solutions-based provider, and we are excited to offer the chemical market more and better ways to solve their material handling and loading challenges,” he said.

Koeninger also explained, “ADS Controls has already built strong ties in the chemical industry, and we intend to build on those relationships by offering more product and system solutions to our customers.”
