The Company


ROSS UK – Subsidiary to ROSS CONTROLS®



In 1917 Charlie Ross, a master mechanic living in Detroit/USA, manufactured the very first ROSS valve using Chevrolet engine tappets, springs and other components. Soon after, he filed his first patent. In 1921, Charlie Ross together with St Clair Cameron and four others incorporated the “Ross Operating Valve Company“.

Today, ROSS CONTROLS®, headquartered in Troy, Michigan, USA proudly continues as a private company owned by the Cameron family. The spirit of ingenuity and appreciation for state-of-the-art designs remain the essential ingredients to the corporate culture.
