  Biographical Info:

W&O’s origins begin with entrepreneur Herbert E. Goelz, a graduate of Kings Point Maritime Academy and chief mate on liberty ships during World War II. He combined his love for the marine business with his vision to be in every major port in the United States to make W&O the only nationwide supplier of pipe, valves, and fittings to the marine industry.

W&O is now one of the world’s largest suppliers of pipe, valves, fittings as well as actuation and engineered solutions to the maritime and upstream oil & gas industries. Among our premier offerings are valve-automation services provided through our Engineered Products and Automated Services division. W&O serves all segments of the marine industry, including commercial shipping, the U.S. Navy, Military Sealift Command, MARAD, U.S. Coast Guard, cruise lines, barge owners, offshore oil and natural-gas rigs, and shipyards that build and repair vessels of all sizes. W&O is proud to represent the most recognizable brands and to offer more products at more locations than any other marine-products distributor in the United States. We provide convenient access to complete valve-automation networked systems that are assembled, tested, delivered and ready to install in ships or offshore platforms being built or repaired.

Today, W&O remains headquartered in Jacksonville and operates a strategic branch network of stocking locations worldwide. Outside of the USA, W&O has branches in Canada, Europe, and Asia.  Now led by President Todd Nestel, W&O continues their legacy of service to the maritime industry that was the vision of its founder many years ago.
