Clarke Industrial Engineering was founded by Kyle Daniels in Miami, FL in 2011.  A descendant of the Miami Beach pioneering Clarke family, Mr. Daniels named his company after his great uncle, Gerald Clarke, who gave his life serving the U.S. Army in World War II. Gerald Clarke was a brilliant mechanic and inventor.

Kyle Daniels developed the Shutter Valve technology during his career as an aerospace engineer, as a solution for critical flight safety problems with aircraft valves for air management systems.

Over several intensive years of development, the design continued to become increasingly more sophisticated, until it was perfected in 2012.  Three U.S. Patents have been granted.

Kyle Daniels is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering and a graduate of Brown University with a master’s degree in Business and Engineering Management.
