About Us (Canada)

Reliance Worldwide Corporation® (RWC) is a global provider of water control systems and plumbing solutions for domestic, commercial and industrial applications. Founded in 1949, RWC originally specialized in the design and manufacture of valves for the control of pressure, temperature and flow used in the installation of water heaters and water heating systems. RWC Canada operations opened in 2011 in Vaughan, Ontario to provide local Canadian support and continued growth to an already established North American market.

With roots dating back to 1912, the Cash Acme manufacturing operation has been in performance for over 100 years, and joined the RWC group in 2002, with the immediate benefit of combining the Cash Acme quality and history with the RWC market leading range of thermostatic mixing valves. Cash Acme is the largest T&P valve manufacturer in the world, and specializes in a wide range of pressure, thermostatic and temperature control valves.

In 2005, RWC introduced the SharkBite Connection System to the Canadian plumbing industry, and has continued to develop a hallmark of push-to-connect plumbing solutions for professional contractors and DIYers alike. From residential service & repair to commercial new construction, SharkBite plumbing solutions provide a quick and easy application that saves installers time, labour and money, and the freedom to move on to the next project.
