PVA was founded in 1992 by president Anthony Hynes. Hynes began selling dispensing valves for automated and manual dispensing applications out of his home prior to moving to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's (RPI) Incubator Center later that year. It was there that PVA began building XYZ robots to automate their growing valve technology. On October 26, 1992, PVA sold their first automated dispensing system.
PVA's dispensing valve product line grew rapidly to include technology that proved superior for accurately applying conformal coating materials. In 1994, PVA debuted a selective conformal coating system that would later become the PVA2000. The PVA2000 improved on existing XYZ plotting systems by introducing a closed-loop servo controlled process that proved increasingly accurate and rugged. In October of 1994, Invotronics in Canada became PVA's first selective coating system customer.
PVA quickly began to claim local and national accolades by winning the 1995 National Incubator Tenant of the Year and the Capital District Business Review's Small Business of the year in 1998. PVA claimed SMT Magazine's Vision Award for innovative valve technology and Circuits Assembly's prestigious Service Excellence Award for three consecutive years.
PVA is now headquartered in a 30,000 square foot facility in Halfmoon, New York with regional sites stationed throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. PVA continues to bring our customers the finest quality in automated and manual dispensing solutions while servicing well over 2000 modules at many of the world's largest manufacturers.
PVA continues to be owned and operated by founder Anthony Hynes.
