Ohio Transmission acquires IDG Compressor

Ohio Transmission Corporation announced the acquisition of Tennessee-based IDG Compressor.

IDG Compressor, with Tennessee locations in Chattanooga, Knoxville and Nashville, and remote operations in parts of Kentucky and Georgia, is a full-service distributor of Quincy Compressor products and repair services and has served the Tennessee and surrounding markets for several decades. Until this acquisition, IDG Compressor was part of the Sonepar/Vallen Distribution network since 2001.

The company will become a division of Air Technologies, a compressed air system equipment and service provider that is part of the OTC family of companies. 

“IDG is an outstanding addition to the Air Technologies and OTC family,” said Philip Derrow, president and CEO of Ohio Transmission Corporation. “The associates of IDG are committed to continuing to build the presence of the Quincy brand throughout their markets and Quincy is an important partner for OTC. Together we will deliver even better service to our customers.”

“We are excited and committed to achieving sustained success with the IDG Compressor team,” said Kurt Lang, president of Air Technologies. “This team has a long and rich history in these markets, and we will work diligently to keep creating an outstanding work culture, providing customers with an excellent experience and becoming firmly dominant in our new Tennessee markets. In addition, we are grateful to be working with Quincy Compressor. Our experience with the Quincy team has been terrific — they have consistently provided us a great customer experience over time coupled with a superior product portfolio.”

IDG Compressor will continue to operate under the same name and with current local management, including Tim Huber, region manager, to lead the team.

“We valued our Vallen relationship and had been operating within an MRO supply company for around 50 years,” said Hube. “We are all so very excited to be part of a market-leading compressor sales and service organization like Air Technologies and look forward to the transition and the future.”

“We are excited by the growth opportunities for the associates of IDG as well as for our Air Technologies group,” said Matt Piatt, COO/CFO of Ohio Transmission Corporation.
