Previous president and owner, Cary Corcoran, sees the acquisition as a way to further amplify business initiatives by improving their ability to meet customer product needs and service repairs.

"We feel that this is a great opportunity for us to continue and improve on our abilities to be of service,” Corcoran said. “I have been part of the organization for 45 years and look forward to my continued interaction with our customers.” 

Corcoran will be joining Fischer Process Industries as a sales and product specialist for filtration products. Several other members of the HE Dandy Co INC team will also be joining the Fischer Process Industries family.
