BROOKFIELD, Wisc. (Feb. 14, 2017)—Anderson Process, one of the Midwest’s leading suppliers of process equipment and services, said it has acquired Werner-Todd Pump Company, a long-standing pump distributor and service provider in the Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky regions.
Starting March 6, Werner-Todd will begin operating and conducting business under the Anderson Process name and brand, according to a statement from Anderson Process.
Anderson Process said the acquisition and merger will leverage synergies in existing infrastructures, as well as add to the product offering and service capabilities of both organizations. The resulting company will represent one of the largest dedicated process equipment distributors in the Midwest in size and reach, according to the company.
After the acquisition, Anderson Process will have warehouse and service facilities in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. This will provide the company the physical footprint necessary to specify and deliver a complete offering of process equipment, including pumps, hose, filtration, and more, to the entirety of the Midwest region, according to the statement.
“Werner-Todd is a highly respected distributor with a strong history in areas of the Midwest we haven’t been able to properly serve to date,” said Anderson Process CEO Greg Domino. “We’re confident in the people and processes Werner-Todd has in place, and this acquisition represents a big opportunity to bring the best of both organizations together.”
Anderson Process anticipates minimal changes or interruptions to the current operations at Werner-Todd or in the day-to-day experience of the company’s existing client base. Beyond necessary changes to invoicing and billing logistics, the company foresees limited changes in personnel or how customers do business with the organization. Additional information regarding the changeover process will be communicated to existing customers and suppliers in the coming weeks.
“The most critical component of the acquisition from the Werner-Todd perspective was working with a partner that valued, respected and wanted to build upon our legacy as an organization committed to providing the best possible equipment and service to our customers,” said Graham Todd of Werner-Todd. “Anderson Process’s reputation in Wisconsin and Illinois are unprecedented in our industry. It’s clear that Anderson Process is a company whose foundation and values are similar to our own, and I’m positive that both our customers and internal team will benefit from acquisition.”
