Alfa Laval Group Acquires Heat Exchanger Service Company in Brazil
The Alfa Laval Group has acquired PHE Indústria e Comércio de Equipamentos Ltda. in Brazil, a company that services plate heat exchangers in a variety of industries. The company, which had sales of about US$6 million in 2008 and some 35 employees, will be integrated into Tranter.
“With this acquisition we strengthen Tranter’s presence in Brazil, especially in the heat exchanger service area which supports new sales,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “Our multibrand strategy has been successful and Tranter continues to offer its own product range under the Tranter brand through its own distribution network.” PHE Indústria e Comércio de Equipamentos Ltda. will be consolidated in the Alfa Laval Group from August 1, 2009.
