Celebrating 35 Years of Innovation and Service Read More


We’re more than a valve, actuator and strainer distributor. We’re a shipboard solution provider.

In addition to selling, servicing, and warrantying flow control parts, valves & assemblies — we offer comprehensive and cutting-edge marine engineering capabilities from design through installation.

Selected from over 300 entries, JA Moody was one of 12 companies to present to the US Navy at the Small Business Showcase Event at Sea Air Space in 2021. We were chosen to discuss the Next Generation Hardened Seat TOTS Valve that we’re in the process of bringing to market.

Our technical solutions save you time and money.

When it comes to flow control requirements, our expert insight and technical excellence turn complex problems into result-driven, sustainable performance. We’re a recognized market leader in U.S. Navy fluid control solutions, and our tested and approved products are designed to save time and money.

By transforming new and innovative ideas into practical applications, we deliver onboard performance and efficiency. Our decades of consultative work with the U.S. Navy have laid a foundation of trust by proving that we can supply the right solution to any flow control problem.

The experience of our technical sales team helps clients avoid costly mistakes in the shock & vibe process — from onsite simulation testing in labs, to witnessing and reviewing test procedures to post reporting. The results we’ve demonstrated working with several different Navy-Certified Shock Test Facilities have made us a trusted partner of the U.S. Navy.

In addition to bringing new products to market, we also can help source obsolete valves and parts in a timely fashion.

Responsiveness and readiness are other qualities that set us apart. Moody Marine Service offices are close to major shipyards and available 24/7/365 to troubleshoot on or off the ship.

We offer an extensive product records database, and our team is highly technically proficient at repairing actuators and skillfully completing all types of warranty work.
