Reliance Worldwide, the state of Alabama and the community of Cullman, reached an agreement for Reliance to invest in a new facility to expand the company’s ability to manufacture its SharkBite plumbing connection products in Cullman.

In 2002, RWC acquired the Case Acme water valve manufacturing facility in Cullman. SharkBite was introduced in the U.S. in 2004 and is a push-to-connect plumbing system.

 “We are proud to partner with the state of Alabama, Alabama Industrial Development Training and the Cullman Economic Development Agency to invest a significant amount of capital to introduce new robotic and high-  technology plastic and brass manufacturing to our U.S. operations,” RWC Presudent and CEO Michael Williams said.
