VERNON, Calif. -- Bender CCP and Unico Mechanical, providers of turnkey engineering, machining and field repair services, announced today that it completed its acquisition of Accurate Machine and Tool (AMT) of Corona, California.  AMT is an established expert provider of in-place machining and turbine overhauls for the power generation industry.  The acquisition broadens Unico Mechanical and Bender CCP's field service and steam turbine repair capabilities, as well as bringing tooling manufacturing expertise.

"As we experience a growing demand across a number of industries, AMT's field services, tooling manufacturing and other machining capabilities allows us to expand our capacity," said Michael Potter, president and CEO of Bender CCP. "Our customers look to us as a one stop shop and, with AMT onboard, we offer more robust services."

"Our hydropower business has grown drastically in the last 10 years," said Randy Potter, president and CEO of Unico Mechanical. "AMT brings the deep field expertise necessary for the complex large-scale hydropower projects we handle such as the Hoover Dam, California Water Resources and Pacific Gas & Electric.  We're excited to have the AMT team on board."

AMT's president Terry Forg said, "Joining the Bender CCP and Unico team is a natural next step for AMT. It provides a great opportunity to bring our in-place and turbine repair expertise to larger-scale projects in the western region, and to bring Bender and Unico's broader service set to our power generation customer base."
