Nature of Business
Founded in 1975, W&O is one of the world's largest suppliers of pipe, valves, fittings, engineered solutions and valve actuation for the maritime and offshore industries. Serving a variety of customers around the world, W&O operates a network of 19 branches throughout North America, Europe and Asia from its corporate headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida.
W&O focuses exclusively on the maritime industry. And we serve all segments, including commercial shipping, the U.S. Navy, Military Sealift Command, MARAD, U.S. Coast Guard, cruise lines, barge owners, offshore oil and natural-gas rigs, and shipyards that build and repair vessels of all sizes.
At W&O, we are proud to represent the most recognisable brands and to offer more products at more locations than any other marine-products distributor. We provide convenient access to complete valve-automation networked systems that are assembled, tested, delivered and ready to install in ships or offershore platforms being built or repaired.
