Corrosion Products acquires Genesee County firm

Rochester Business Journal
May 8, 2014

Corrosion Products & Equipment Inc. has acquired the assets of Burgh & Schoenenberger Associates Inc., a fluid handling instrumentation distributor based in Pavilion, Genesee County.

This marks the second acquisition for CPE in 2014. In January the company acquired VibraNostics Inc., which expanded the company’s equipment monitoring services to include vibration analysis.

CPE is a fluid handling and process equipment distribution and specialty construction services company. It has its headquarters in Rochester and additional locations in Albany and Jamaica. The company employs 60 people, including 17 in Rochester.

"CPE is building our flow performance brand on the pillars of people, engineered products and unique service capabilities,” said Peter Tortorella, CPE senior vice president of sales, in a statement Wednesday.

Terms of the deal were not released.

Its new partnership with Burgh & Schoenenberger’s key suppliers places CPE in the consultation side of the market, and adds product lines and service capabilities, he said.

Burgh & Schoenenberger, founded in 1972, provides liquid flow monitoring equipment to the clean water and wastewater markets. Its six staffers will join CPE. Hans Schoenenberger, co-founder and president, will stay on as a full-time consultant. The staff of repair technicians and customer service support also will join CPE, officials said.
 
“We have many of the same customers, but our offered products have historically not overlapped,” Schoenenberger said in a statement. “The acquisition will allow us to provide expanded turnkey solutions for our merged customer base.”
