LaValley Industries was founded in 2006 when Owner and CEO, Jason LaValley thought of the concept for  the DECKHAND while working on  pipeline projects.

Over the years, the DECKHAND product line has grown to include three different head attachments, including the DH, DHL and DHXL. There are numerous arm combinations , including the 8-12” Interchangeable Pipe Arms, 24” Utility Arm, 20-42” Pipe Arms, and the Directional Drilling Arm, thus creating a flexible and powerful "Arm System".

LaValley Industries was named a winner of the 2011 IDEA Competition, with their entry of a DECKHAND product!! This makes LaValley Industries the only two-time winner of this competition! 

IDEA was created to assist the most promising local entrepreneurs in the commercialization of innovative products, processes and deliveries by connecting them to the best resources available, along with access to the capital it takes to launch a successful venture.
