Clark-Reliance® has formed a new Instrumentation and Controls Group that will be made up of Jerguson® liquid level gages and valves, Jacoby-Tarbox® sight flow indicators, Magne-Sonics® level measurement and control products, and Clark-Reliance/Reliance boiler level controls. This decision places each of the company's division companies under one of three new Group names, and should simplify the ordering and bidding process for customers. The three new groups are Clark-Reliance® Instrument and Controls Group, Clark Reliance® Filtration Group, and Clark Reliance® Hydraulics and Lubrication group.
