Headquartered in Linköping, Sweden, NAF engineers, designs and builds Flowserve’s NAF control valve portfolio for pulp and paper and other related industries. The company has been providing process control valves for more than 100 years.

Andritz has been equipping its production plant and equipment deliveries with NAF control valves for many years.

This acquisition further extends and strengthens Andritz’s product and service portfolio in process control.

Jarno Nymark, Andritz executive board member responsible for the Pulp & Paper business area, said: “I look forward to welcoming the NAF AB team to the Andritz GROUP. Their control valves are an important element for the operation and optimization of process plants and hence a valuable addition to our process control product portfolio. We are excited about the opportunity to expand NAF AB's sales and service capabilities by leveraging our global presence.”
