M&H Wedgecoat Department still going strong after making 1,000,000th wedge
August 30, 2018
In August 2013, M&H Valve began rubber-coating wedges for our 6" resilient-seated gate valves. Soon after, production expanded to include sizes 2"-16"; and today, M&H supplies these rubber-coated wedges for all the McWane Valve and Hydrant divisions. In celebration of this 5-year anniversary, M&H would like to highlight an exciting accomplishment of the Wedgecoat Department from earlier this year. On March 13, 2018, the one-millionth wedge was produced at the M&H facility. Perhaps an even prouder accomplishment is that - even at the time - an overwhelming majority of those wedges were already in use in gate valves serving communities across the U.S. and around the world. M&H would like to thank our Wedgecoat Department for their continued commitment to excellence and their determination to help us exceed our goals in service to the waterworks industry small enough that you can walk it in several hours.
