At the turn of the twentieth century, John A. Zurn purchased a backwater valve patent from Erie City Iron Works. The product prevented storm and wastewater from flowing back into a building’s drainage system. Fast forward to now, and the Zurn company spans nine locations, specializes in nine product divisions, and employs over four hundred problem solvers. Zurn offers a vast array of building water safety, site drainage and behind-the-wall systems, and front of wall fixtures and trim, with a portfolio unequaled by any single manufacturer globally. They offer best-in-class customer service and sales organizations, along with market-leading specification, design and application tools.

Wolfa has been been producing and processing glass fiber reinforced plastic (GRP) for almost sixty years. The glass fiber compound and the thermosetting polyester resin guarantee greatest stability and shape retention even under extreme conditions. GRP has become an integral and indispensable component in car engineering, shipbuilding and the aerospace industry. Wolfa uses this material as a sheet molding compound (SMC), a mixture of polyester resin, mineral filling material and a high portion of glass fibers.  Unlike traditional thermoplastics such as PVC or polypropylene, our SMC cannot be reshaped by heat once it has hardened, and retains its sturdy and stable characteristics even when exposed to extreme temperature fluctuations.
