MOGAS eyes high-pressure acid leach, POX market growth with Watson Valve buy

MOGAS Industries has completed the acquisition of assets of Watson Valve, a US-based turnkey manufacturer of severe service valves for industries including mining.

Watson has a global install base of over 3,400 valves, primarily in the mining industry, but also encompassing the oil & gas and chemical industries, MOGAS said.

“This strategic purchase expands MOGAS’ global mining reach on valve supply and valve repair services, as well as adjacent market opportunities especially pertaining to the autoclave market,” it said. “It also provides an opportunity for MOGAS to build and strengthen its technology-driven vision for the niche pressure leach industry – both high-pressure acid leach, as well as pressure oxidation – by including long-standing mining customers to its portfolio, especially in the North American region.

MOGAS says it is committed to supporting and servicing the additional customer base brought about by this purchase, using its extensive global network of in-house and authorised repair centres.

Matt Mogas, MOGAS President and CEO, said: “This acquisition allows MOGAS to expand its product portfolio and get a step closer to achieve our vision as the dominant severe service technology company. We would like to offer our customers more options, and will continue to leverage our years of field experience to further enhance the Watson product line.”

MOGAS expands mining and mineral processing offering with Brenco acquisition

MOGAS Industries says it has completed the acquisition of Brenco Group, an Australia-based provider of surface coating and engineering processes.

The purchase will extend MOGAS’ capabilities in surface technologies, while strengthening investment in the Australasian markets to serve the needs of customers in the region, MOGAS said, adding that Brenco Group will now be referred to as Brenco, a division of MOGAS.

Brenco’s Surface Engineering divisions deliver engineering and coating expertise to the mining and mineral processing, drilling and exploration and oil & gas, and general processing industry.

MOGAS Industries, meanwhile, provides application-specific products for critical valve applications in power, mining, oil & gas, refining, chemical/petrochemical, pulp & paper and specialty industries. This includes applications in high pressure acid leaching and pressure oxidation operations.

Matt Mogas, President and CEO at MOGAS Industries, said: “This acquisition allows MOGAS to bring the next generation of patented laser cladding technology in-house. It also allows MOGAS to expand its advanced coating, welding, cladding and material testing technologies to serve a range of customers in the region, especially those in autoclave, mining, minerals processing, oil & gas and aerospace industries.”

Quyen Tran, Director at Brenco, said the sale of the company means Brenco is “better positioned for growth”.
