Specialty flow control distributor FCX Performance — No. 34 on Industrial Distribution's 2015 Big 50 List — announced Tuesday that it has acquired Farmington Hills, MI-based S W Controls Inc., a regional distributor of valves and instrumentation to the process market.
"We are excited to welcome the dedicated teammates, customers, and vendors of S W Controls to FCX Performance,” said FCX president and CEO Tom Cox. "Dan Willson and his team have built a quality organization that is well-recognized by customers and vendors alike. By combining the strengths of the two companies, FCX Performance will be the leading supplier of highly-technical, mission critical flow control products to the midwestern markets, jointly served by both firms."
FCX said the acquisition gives it more than 400 sales, technical support and services professionals, while strengthening its venfor relationships, complete lifecycle service offerings and broad flow/fluid control product offerings. FCX now has 34 sales and distribution locations with strategically located inventory.
"The two companies have very similar cultures that emphasize customer service, vendor relationships and a focus on providing long-term, career growth opportunities for our team members," Cox added.
