For more than 50 years, Atlantic Valve & Supply Co. has been distributing valves and fittings for the shipbuilding industry, serving a client list that includes the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy. The family-run business, which operates out of a 10,000-square foot warehouse in Baltimore’s Brooklyn neighborhood, completed a second round of lighting upgrades through BGE’s Small Business Energy Solutions program.
