COLUMBUS, Ohio—Ohio Transmission Corporation has acquired Industrial Process Equipment Group (IPEG), a pump and process equipment company that will broaden the geographical reach of Ohio Transmission Corporation’s industrial product and service offerings and grow the corporation’s expert technical staff. With the acquisition, Ohio Transmission Corporation will add all three IPEG office locations in St. Louis, Missouri; Decatur, Illinois; and Calvert City, Kentucky to its syndicate of 18 locations in six Midwest states and Texas. Ohio Transmission Corporation brought on 52 employees from IPEG at the beginning of the new year, increasing its workforce to 468 employees.
IPEG will become a subsidiary of Ohio Transmission Corporation and benefit from access to additional resources that will enhance the growth of its highly respected pump and process equipment business. The move to acquire IPEG will allow Ohio Transmission Corporation, more commonly known in the marketplace as OTP Industrial Solutions and Air Technologies®, to serve a larger number of customers with a diverse set of industrial equipment and service needs.
“IPEG is a very successful and well-respected pump and process equipment company with a rich history and outstanding associates. By adding IPEG to the Ohio Transmission Corporation family of companies, we will strengthen our ability to serve customers and expand opportunities for the employees and customers of both companies,” said Philip Derrow, president of Ohio Transmission Corporation. “The addition of talented and experienced industrial pump experts will strengthen our already strong team of experts."
