Transaction Deepens Dry Filtration Aftermarket Offerings
Romeoville, IL – August 21, 2015 – Micronics Holdings announced today the acquisition of AeroPulse, Inc. (“AeroPulse”), a 44 year old designer and manufacturer of baghouses and related equipment for a variety of end markets. AeroPulse will become a part of Micronics’ dry filtration business unit, C.P. Environmental, a leader in dry filtration service, maintenance, replacement bags and parts. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Our aftermarket customers often ask us to help them refurbish, retrofit, expand, replace or upgrade aspects of their existing bag house systems when they no longer can be repaired or maintained. Due to the small scale and on-site labor intensive nature of these projects, larger bag house OEM’s tend to refer these types of projects to smaller service providers. With the addition of AeroPulse expertise, we deepen our engineering bench strength enabling us to better provide a more comprehensive engineered solutions approach in addressing the unique bag house system challenges faced by many of our customers. We are excited to add the AeroPulse team to C.P. Environmental,” commented C.P. Environmental President, Don Eldert. “This transaction will help us better serve our existing customers and introduce our breadth of aftermarket service and support capabilities to existing AeroPulse customers.”
Based in Bristol, Pennsylvania, AeroPulse has been serving the dry filtration industry since 1980 as a manufacturer of pulse jet fabric filter dust collectors for air pollution control and product recovery used in industrial, food, agriculture, energy, utility, steel/Iron, foundry, aggregate, cement, asphalt, carbon, quarries and other Mining industries.
