Our objective is to deliver our products and services to our customers on time and on budget.



JA Moody Company originated in the 1950’s as a fluid power distributor selling fittings, hoses and couplings. In the 1970’s, new owners added military spec valves and began selling to the US Navy. As the company grew, the fluid power business was sold off and the company focused on Navy valve assemblies. In 2003, a service group was established in Florida and Virginia to meet customer needs for actuator and valve repairs. Recently the company has expanded valve product offerings to meet the needs of the Commercial Marine Market. Today, JA Moody focuses exclusively on the Marine Industry and sells fluid control products nationwide. JA Moody is the exclusive distributor for Pentair and Nu-Torque products in the marine industry. JA Moody has offices in Florida, Alabama, Virginia, California and Pennsylvania.

JA Moody is here to help you.
Whether it’s to find a specific valve replacement or put together an assembly, JA Moody professionals can help by providing a timely and cost effective solution to your fluid control problems. Many of our sales professionals have over twenty years of experience working with the US Navy and Commercial Marine Market. Let our experience in the valve and actuator world work for you.
