Rotolok is a global market leader in rotary valves, diverter valves, and valve technologies for the powder and bulk handling industries.
This company was founded by Dan McCauley in the United Kingdom in 1973. They designed and subcontracted work from an office facility in Southeastern England. Rotolok soon expanded and relocated to Devon in the South West. Even more, they built their own factory which had the ability to manufacture all key equipment.

Also, to meet ever increasing market demand, Rotolok re-equipped its Machining and Fabrication facility with the addition of high technology horizontal CNC machining centers with both six and twelve pallet, pre-loading stations, the latter having replaced 3 CNC dual pallet machines.
