About Shan-Rod, Inc.


Our Vision

Our Vision is to have a Shan-Rod valve installed in every Industrial facility in North America that requires a fabricated gas butterfly valve or damper.

About Us

Shan-Rod, Inc was established by Mr.Shannon & Mr.Rodwancy in 1969 for the purpose of developing low pressure/high temperature dampers for the glass, steel and petro-chemical industries. The dampers were marketed via independent sales representatives. Design, manufacturing & testing was done at Shan-Rod’s existing facility in Berlin Heights, Ohio.

In 1973, David Hatala was hired as the plant manager and went on to become vice president of the company. He acquired Shan-Rod, Inc. in 1987. Today, ownership rests with David Hatala and key employees.

At Shan-Rod, we utilize modern technologies and techniques to engineer and manufacture our dampers and valves to meet the toughest design conditions. In addition to the valve design, we select and recommend the best materials available to meet those conditions.

Since 1969, Shan-Rod has sold over (22,000) dampers worldwide and has expanded into the cement, aluminum and mining industries. Our product line now includes gate valves, guillotines, multi-louvers, high pressure control valves, tight shutoff butterfly valves and pressure vessels.

In addition to valve production, Shan-Rod, Inc. also excels in General Fabrication and Assembly. Shan-Rod, Inc. has held an ASME “U” stamp for more than 20 years. So we can fabricate your new Pressure Vessel. And with our “R” stamp, we can modify or repair your existing Pressure Vessel as well.
