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”.
