About US Controls

United States Controls, US Controls or just USC, it doesn’t matter, we have mill duty spray valves precisely for your needs.  US Controls is 100% focused on providing superior cooling systems for your rolling mill application.  It’s all we do.  Your equipment will be designed, manufactured, assembled, and tested in our Ohio and Pennsylvania, USA facilities.

Our equipment lasts for decades – and so do our customer relations.  We still fully support every piece of equipment we have manufactured over 40+ years.  Many of our original systems are still operating today --- every day, after 40 years!

Who We Are...

Originally founded in 1983, US Controls put its mark on the rolling mill industry almost immediately with our superior modular valve designs that outlast and outperform the competition.  Our engineers have over 70 years of rolling mill spray valve experience and have designed well over 300 mill stands operating around the world.

We are headquartered just outside of Youngstown Ohio where we design, build, and test our equipment.  We machine our own sub-components in our sister company’s machine shop (Solenoid Solutions) in Erie, Pa.  US Controls is privately held – and our major shareholder remains active in the business.

How We Work...

100% support of every product (no matter how old it is)
We have inventory and documentation on every system and every part ever produced.  If you need it, we have it!!!

Exclusive Design/Engineering Services
USC systems are designed individually for you!  Having had long term relationships with the industries’ major AFC engineers and mill builders, it is very easy for USC to work with the respective mill builder to integrate USC equipment with any mill.  There is no need to compromise.

Quality Counts...

Our quality control and dedication to the final product surpasses anyone in the industry.  We are not only proud of this statement but proud that we are “Made and Manufactured in the USA”. 

With less required maintenance and easier accessibility to major components, USC valves outperform our competitors – so you benefit from increased up-time and reliability.

Why Do Business With Us?...

Our experience – Our people, like our customers, are with us for the long term.  They are happy to share their extensive knowledge – and listen and learn too!

Our focus is on making you successful – being privately held and 100% focused on this niche of our industry enables us (and REQUIRES us) to put our focus on bending backwards to ensure you are satisfied.
