Aliaxis SA, a world leader enabling access to water and energy through inventive fluid management solutions, has announced that it has completed the acquisition of Harco, a producer of fittings located in Virginia. Harco will join Aliaxis’ North American IPEX business, thus further strengthening the company’s position in the U.S.
Eric Olsen, CEO of Aliaxis, comments: “As part of our Growth with Purpose strategy, North America is a priority growth market for Aliaxis. Acquiring a well-established company in municipal, irrigation, and agriculture end-markets allows us to offer an expanded product portfolio to a broader customer base in the U.S.”
Alex Mestres, Divisional CEO for Aliaxis in the Americas, adds: “We are very happy to welcome more than 200 new colleagues. This joining of two great companies provides us with an exciting opportunity to combine the strengths and experiences of both the IPEX and Harco teams, to continue providing industry-leading customer service.”
