ARCA Regler GmbH/About ARCA

ARCA is a specialist in sophisticated industrial process control.

Our story began in 1917 with a groundbreaking innovation. The patented nozzle/flapper system changed the control of entire branches of industry at that time and was the spark for the founding of the company ARCA. Since then, outstanding engineering skills and pioneering spirit have been key strengths of our family-run company.

Our control technology is the reliable interface of your process and the heart of your production. At ARCA, we have been aware of this responsibility for over 100 years.

The ARCA understanding of processes has made us what we are today: A successful company at the centre of a strong international group of companies. A company that not only develops, sustainably produces and installs control valves and special valves for a wide variety of industries worldwide. Today, ARCA also offers comprehensive services for the safe and efficient control of your processes. From project consulting to maintenance to process optimisation.

OUR VALUES

As in any world-class orchestra, a company depends on the good interaction of all employees as a team in order to achieve an excellent result. One blows vigorously into the horn at the right time, the other works constantly in the background with soft tones. Ultimately, no one can bring the piece to the stage in full maturity without the other. Our values at ARCA are based on this.

In detail, this means for all our employees worldwide:

TEAM SPIRIT

  • We rely on a team in which very different people work together.
  • We work together to achieve our goals.
  • We motivate each other.
  • We work together to take difficult decisions.
  • We support one another by sharing knowledge and resources.
  • We create a pleasant working atmosphere in which one can have fun.
  • We celebrate successes as a team.

RESPECT

  • We respect and value our colleagues, customers, suppliers and fellow human beings and treat them fairly and trustingly.
  • We take into account the time and tasks of others.
  • We listen.
  • We put people first.
  • We promote open and honest communication.
  • We treat resources and nature with care.

RESPONSIBILITY

  • We accept both our individual and our shared responsibility and keep to our commitments.
  • We take responsibility for our actions, our decisions and our performances.
  • We take risks, admit mistakes, recognise successes and learn in the process.
  • We focus on solving problems instead of reproaching one another.

INTEGRITY

  • We are always honest and fair.
  • We lead by example.
  • We keep our promises – a handshake at ARCA carries weight.
  • We trust in facts, not rumours.
  • We build trust through open and honest communication.

OPENNESS

  • We work across geographical and departmental boundaries.
  • We are open to new and different things and take the opportunities that arise from them.
  • We encourage and reward creative thinking.
  • We work in a future-oriented manner and discover new technological possibilities.
  • We are flexible and open to new ideas and changes.
  • We stand for free space and free markets in which people, skills and opportunities can develop.

ARCA International

Customer proximity is particularly close to ARCA’s heart. Therefore, it was obvious at an early stage to look for internationally competent local partners. Our first joint ventures in India and South Korea are an example of this. Here we have concentrated knowledge of control technology, which is familiar with the specific requirements in the region, and can demonstrate more than 30 years of experience.

A subsidiary in Switzerland, as well as later joint ventures in the USA and the People’s Republic of China underline ARCA’s internationality.

In addition, a close-knit sales and service network »around the globe« is available to our customers and completes our global product range.
