Quality Valve

Founded in 1994 and headquartered in Mobile, Alabama, Quality Valve is the premier distributor of valve replacement and repair parts and accessories, offering a brand agnostic “one-stop shop” for customers across attractive end markets. With a comprehensive product portfolio of low-cost, high-cost-of-failure parts, the company serves a critical role in supporting end users’ mission-critical maintenance, repair and operations needs by connecting major valve original equipment manufacturers with end users.

The Deal

Lincoln International served as the exclusive financial advisor and placement agent for the transaction, successfully placing the debt financing in support of The Stephens Group’s acquisition of Quality Valve. Quality Valve is well positioned to execute its growth strategy in partnership with The Stephens Group and with the support of a strong long-term lending partner.
