Atlas Copco to Acquire Quincy Compressor

Atlas Copco has agreed to acquire Quincy Compressor from EnPro Industries, Inc. for approximately $190 million. The acquisition is subject to regulatory approvals.

Quincy Compressor had revenues in 2008 of $174 million, with an operating profit margin of about 15 percent, and has about 400 employees. It designs and manufactures reciprocating compressors, rotary screw compressors and vacuum pumps, primarily under the Quincy brand. Atlas Copco plans to further develop the Quincy brand independently.

“We look forward to working with Quincy Compressor and its strong distributor network. The strategic fit is very good and we will be able to better serve customers in the United States with an even more differentiated product portfolio,” says Stephan Kuhn, Business Area president, Atlas Copco Compressor Technique. “For Atlas Copco, this acquisition offers interesting synergies in both product design and supply chain management, while adding a strong brand for our continued growth.”

Quincy was founded in the 1920s and is headquartered in Bay Minette, Ala. It has manufacturing facilities in Bay Minette, Quincy, Illinois and Kunshan, China. The products are sold through a network of independent distributors and agents. More than three quarters of the sales are in the United States.

The acquisition is carried out by Fulcrum Acquisition LLC, a subsidiary of Atlas Copco North America LLC, and Atlas Copco (China) Investment Company Ltd., buying Quincy from EnPro’s subsidiary Coltec Industries, Inc. The company expects the transaction to close in the first quarter of 2010. Fulcrum will change its name to Quincy Compressor LLC once the acquisition is completed.
