NEW KENSINGTON, PA -- Bacharach Inc., a leading USA manufacturer serving the HVAC/R industry for over 100 years, announced today it has acquired Murco Limited, a privately- held manufacturer of fixed gas detection solutions. Further financial terms were not disclosed.
"We are excited about the synergy between Bacharach and Murco," said Stacy Brovitz, President of Bacharach. "While both companies are strong players in their respective market space, there is little overlap between the current product portfolios, therefore broadening the product and service offering. Both companies are committed to identifying and implementing best practices in all areas of operations in order to serve customers better in an increasingly competitive marketplace. The motivation behind this transaction is simply to serve the customers of both companies better."
Dr. Lorcan Maher, PhD, managing director of Murco, added, "I am pleased that our partnership with Bacharach provides a mutually beneficial solution for our customers of gas leak detection and gas monitoring instruments and systems.
