Conbraco Industries was created when two Detroit-based manufacturers of brass valves and fittings merged in 1928 forming Consolidated Brass Company. Over 80 years later, Conbraco is an American success story that's still being written. The company now known as Apollo Valves earned a reputation for developing new products to meet emerging market demands. In 2005, the company brought all of its products under the Apollo Valves brand. Products which had been sold under the Conbraco brand included plumbing and heating products, water gauges, pop safety and relief valves, marine fittings and backflow prevention devices.
