AKO Armaturen & Separationstechnik GmbH is a German company founded in 1984 by Antoine Kopp.
The development and sales of Pinch Valves began as early as 1985. In 1996 the first independent subsidiary, AKO Innovations S.A.S., was established in France. Since then, our products have been produced in both Germany and France. Both companies are certified to ISO 9001:2015 and, in addition to this, comply with the latest standards and market demands to ensure the best possible quality and safety of their products.
The English company, AKO UK Ltd, was established in 1998 to provide more efficient distribution of AKO products in Great Britain and Ireland.
Very high inventory levels and fast response to our customers allow for a rapid, comprehensive and customer-friendly service.
AKO Armaturen & Separationstechnik GmbH is now working with 30 national representatives and is thus able to offer its service all over the world.
AKO's product range has expanded to include knife gate valves, special fittings and various accessories in addition to the original Pinch Valves to meet growing customer demands.
AKO's valves and fittings are specially designed for isolating and regulating abrasive, fibrous and corrosive media. It goes without saying that other media can also be controlled or regulated by AKO fittings.
The continuously high quality of the products, offered at very competitive prices thanks to innovative developments and production techniques, has, considering the practically universal availability of the products, brought AKO the leadership in the air operated Pinch Valve market.
AKO works with various companies from the widest variety of sectors all around the world.
