About Swagelok Southwest Co.
We are the exclusive authorized distributor for Swagelok Company for the Southwestern U.S. Our legal name is Arizona/Albuquerque Valve & Fitting Corporation doing business as Swagelok Southwest Co.
Our team is dedicated to our customers’ success and we are committed to offering the highest quality, service and availability in the business.
Our distributorship was originally founded in the 1960’s as Arizona Valve & Fitting Company. Arizona Valve & Fitting Company and Albuquerque Valve & Fitting Company were merged in 2005. The legal name of the company was changed to Arizona/Albuquerque Valve & Fitting Corporation in 2012. Also, the promotional name Swagelok Southwest Co. was adopted at that time.
Although we are an independent distributor, we have a very close relationship with Swagelok Company, promoting only Swagelok products in our exclusive geographic area. Our business information systems are directly linked to Swagelok Company, and through a series of internal training programs called “One Swagelok” we strive to share company culture and best practices.
Because Swagelok Southwest is locally owned and operated, we are able to dynamically respond to the changing needs of our local market. In addition, we have access to Swagelok Company’s global supply chain, engineering resources and R&D facilities.
