The company was established in 1895 by Daniel Westad. At the time, the company manufactured valves to local pulp and paper industry. Various transitions in the industry allowed Westad to start serving the Marine industry around 1950.
With the arrival of oil and gas production in Norway in the late 1970-ties, Westad adapted its product lines to serve this demanding market segment. Material requirements increased, and Westad delivered on its reputation. Special stainless steel materials like Titanium, Duplex, Super-duplex and 6MO became the common materials for valves in demanding services. Westad aims to be the leading supplier of high tech butterfly valves and ball valves for LNG, LPG, chemicals and other critical applications.
