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.

ARCA cooperations & networks
A pioneering spirit and drive for technological development have been ARCA traits since its foundation. In order to expand our technological market leadership, we cooperate with research institutions, institutes and companies.
Cooperation with universities & institutes
Knowledge creates the future. In partnership and close exchange with teachers and students, our cooperation with universities and institutes creates new insights that initiate new control solutions that develop new markets.
ARCA’s memberships of boards, committees and associations serve to increase and share our knowledge. In addition, industry-specific problems are discussed and dealt with within the framework of research projects, and interests are represented. For ARCA, always in the spirit of our “control the flow” principle.
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.
