ERIKS has continued its growth in the USA with two new acquisitions: IEC Control Shop, a Texas-based distributor of HVAC controls, and Regal-Brown, Inc., an Alabama-based manufacturers' representative for instrumentation, filtration, analytical, and valve products. Both acquisitions were completed in December 2012.
ERIKS has acquired IEC Control Shop through its subsidiary, Industrial Controls, the country's leading distributor of controls, instrumentation, automation and automated valves. IEC Control Shop has branch offices in Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas, which will complement Industrial Controls' existing network of 18 branches and extend its territorial footprint into the rapidly growing Southwest and Gulf Coast.
Regal-Brown, Inc., has been acquired through ERIKS subsidiary Rawson, Inc. Regal-Brown, Inc. will continue to operate under that name, as it has since its founding in 1988, serving customers throughout the states of Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida. This acquisition expands Rawson's coverage and gives them access to the strong markets in the southeast of the USA.
The acquisition of IEC Control Shop and Regal-Brown, Inc. provides ERIKS with a significantly strengthened market position in the USA and firmly underlines its status as a global industrial service provider.
