Pima Valve has been acquired by J.A. Moody, a long-time leader in the sales and service
sector for the marine industry.
Pima Valve will continue to produce the same quality valves at the same location with the same
proficient and experienced people. It’s a big win for both companies as they team up to complement
their respective areas of expertise.
We welcome our new President, Lisa Smith and Chairman, Frank Buzan – both from J.A. Moody with
combined decades of service and experience in the commercial and Navy actuation and valve industry.
In addition to all of that, Al Link, former President of Pima Valve and an employee for 45 years, has
retired. Al was a driving force behind our company’s growth and developing its industry-wide excellent
reputation. He will be missed but we are grateful for having benefited from his knowledge of our
production and leadership.
We also say goodbye to the other two partners Mackie Lish and Duane Ekren.
Though they have been retired for quite a while they have never strayed far from the folks at Pima.
Mack and Duane were two of the original Pima Employees and they were also key forces in building up
If you would like to get in touch with Al or if you have any questions or inquiries, we’d like to hear from
you. You can contact Lisa Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org , Ken Link at email@example.com or Adrienne Link at firstname.lastname@example.org.
