About Us

We Create Value Through Innovation

Gemini Valve is a privately held, family owned, U.S. manufacturer of automated and manual ball valves and valve-related products for demanding on / off control applications. We draw upon our many years of valve design and manufacturing expertise to provide simple and reliable products and solutions.

Parker & Harper Manufacturing

Gemini Valve’s parent company, a machine shop called Parker & Harper Manufacturing, was founded in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Supporting USA Efforts

All company resources are dedicated to manufacturing ammunition shells for the U.S. during World War II. Over 240 employees are enlisted for 24/7 production.

The Sole Supplier to Remington Arms

Parker & Harper grew to be the largest supplier to Remington Arms for many rifle and shot gun components. They were also the sole supplier for critical components including bolts for model 700, rifle firing pins, shotgun firing pins, magazine tubes and gas cylinders.

The Largest Manufacturer of Ball Valve Components in the U.S.

Customers included Jamesbury, later acquired by Metso, and Worcester Controls, later acquired by Flowserve.

Manufacturer of the First Barstock Ball Valve

In a joint venture with Worcester Controls, the industry’s first barstock valve is manufactured.

Private Label for ITT Grinnell, Stockham Valve & Fitting

Based on the increasing popularity of ball valves over commonly used gate valves, other industry giants seek private label agreements.

Expansion to Raymond, New Hampshire

As a result of our continued growth, a new 50,000 sq. ft. manufacturing location is established in Raymond, New Hampshire.

The Gemini Valve Brand is Created

Using our expertise and knowledge in the manufacture of precision ball valves the Gemini Valve brand is established to meet the growing demand for ball valves in the marketplace.

Industry Exclusive Valve Design

This design solves many installation and maintenance problems associated with traditional three-piece ball valves. This valve design would eventually be marketed under our Serviceable Series.
