Cleveland, OH -March 13, 2008-Abanaki Corporation, the world's leading manufacturer of industrial oil skimmers, has announced its purchase of Aerodyne Development Corporation, which manufactures dust collection systems equipment and solid-material-handling components.
Best known for providing job shops as well as industrial giants with oil-skimming solutions the past 40 years, Abanaki Corporation purchased Aerodyne Development Corporation as part of Abanaki's plan for growth in the solid-materials-handling market, said Abanaki owner and president Tom Hobson.
"This is a great fit for the company," Hobson explained. "Abanaki has begun to evolve into this market, and Aerodyne has a well thought-out line of collectors. So it's the right direction."
Aerodyne Development Corporation, headquartered in Chardon, Ohio, manufactures products for separating particles from air and liquid, including dust collection system equipment for foundries, quarries and other large-scale operations, as well as material-handling valves used in such collection processes. Included in its product lines are Vacu Valve, fans, pneumatic conveyors and grit collectors.
In the near future, Abanaki will be making improvements to Aerodyne products.
No financial details about the purchase were made public.
