Anvil International recently announced a pair of acquisitions. First, the North American manufacturer and supplier of products that connect, hang and support piping systems, acquired Basic-PSA of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
Basic-PSA manufactures and services snubbers for the power industry domestically and abroad. The service group provides on-site inspections and service at nuclear facilities throughout the country.
“Basic’s product lines are highly complementary to Anvil’s Engineered Pipe Supports (EPS) business in North Kingstown, Rhode Island,” said Tom Fish, CEO of Anvil International. “Basic’s service business brings a new offering to our portfolio of customer solutions in the power industry.”
Rick Laviolette, vice president and general manager of Anvil EPS, will assume overall responsibilities for the Basic-PSA business and will partner with its management team to expand Anvil International’s presence and offerings in the power industry. Basic-PSA will continue to operate out of its Johnstown, Pennsylvania manufacturing facility.
The manufacturer also acquired Megawatt Machine Services out of Somerset, New Jersey. Megawatt Machine Services provides maintenance services and replacement components for valves used in power-plant, oil and gas, and chemical plant applications.
“Megawatt is an excellent growth opportunity for Anvil. Their valve repair business brings new solutions to our customers in the power and industrial markets,” Fish said. “Megawatt’s complete project support for severe-service valve repair ties in well with Anvil’s Engineered Pipe Supports (EPS) business in North Kingstown.”
Again, Laviolette will assume overall responsibilities for the Megawatt business and will partner with its management team to expand Anvil’s presence and offerings in the power generation, oil and gas, and chemical industries.
