Marsh Bellofram Buys King Engineering
By Control Global Staff
The Marsh Bellofram Group (www.marshbellofram.com) has acquired the product line assets of King Engineering Corp. of Ann Arbor, Mich.
Founded in 1937, King Engineering (www.king-gage.com) is the manufacturer of King-Gage liquid level measurement and inventory tank gauging systems, including related air filtration components for new installations, upgrades and retrofits of storage or processing vessels. The company's product portfolio includes electronic pressure transmitters and sanitary level sensors to meet 3-A standards for clean-in-place applications, as well as graphic tank level indicators, digital processors and single- and multiple-tank operator interfaces, further supporting PLC and/or LAN protocols. Market sectors supported by King Engineering products include food and beverage, personal care, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, chemical processing, and specialized areas of the marine industry.
Under the terms of the acquisition, King Engineering manufacturing operations have been moved from Ann Arbor to Marsh Bellofram global corporate headquarters in Newell, W.V. Both standard and custom products will continue to be offered under the King-Gage brand, with customer service and sales support also transferred to Newell.
Joe Colletti, Jr., president of Marsh Bellofram says, "Our recent acquisition allows Marsh Bellofram to further expand our breadth of product technologies, while offering existing King Engineering customers even greater support. We look forward to continuing the investments in R&D and manufacturing that have allowed King-Gage products to succeed under its prior ownership, and more comprehensively supporting the needs of our valued customer base."
