HOUSTON — NOW Inc. announced Monday that it has entered into an agreement to acquire from GR Energy Services, a portfolio company of Pine Brook, substantially all of the assets used in connection with its Flex Flow business, predominantly relating to the rental, sale and service of surface-mounted horizontal pumping systems and horizontal jet pumping systems. Terms of the all-cash transaction, which remains subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approval, were not disclosed.
David Cherechinsky, President and CEO of NOW Inc. commented, “We are excited about the opportunity to add the Flex Flow business to DistributionNOW. With its established position in the horizontal multi-stage centrifugal pump (H-pump) packages and water management solutions market, Flex Flow will provide numerous attractive opportunities in the midstream space for DNOW. We are looking forward to the opportunity to welcome the Flex Flow employees to our team. DNOW plans to continue to seek acquisitions that can add to its historical return profile in a positive manner and we believe the Flex Flow acquisition will be an excellent example of that.”
