Flow Control Holdings acquires Andron Stainless

Flow Control Holdings (FCH), a provider of sanitary flow components to producers of foods, beverages and pharmaceuticals, has acquired Andron Stainless, a provider of sanitary stainless steel fittings, valves, tubing and accessories. The deal includes Andron Stainless Ltd. (Columbia, South Carolina) and the company’s Canadian operations, and both operations will continue.

“This acquisition further expands our presence and capabilities in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical markets that we serve,” said Scott Kerns, CEO of Flow Control Holdings. "We are particularly excited about Andron’s competency in machining and fabricating stainless steel components and assemblies for sanitary applications.”

Tank LoPresti, president Andron Stainless Corp, added, “We look forward to partnering with the FCH team to accelerate our growth and expand product offerings to our valued customers."

The addition of Andron is aligned to FCH’s goal to grow its product portfolio of sanitary flow components and provide industry-leading service levels to customers as its portfolio expands. Through expanding its presence in Canada and the Southeastern U.S., the addition of Andron will complement FCH’s existing footprint and enable the combined company to better service the customer base and simplify the fulfillment of their sanitary product needs. Beyond the expanded product set and geographic reach, Andron’s manufacturing capabilities represent a natural fit with FCH’s Steel & O’Brien business unit.
