Columbus, OH

FCX Performance — a specialty flow control distributor serving OEMs, EPC’s and end-users across the industrial process, energy and high purity industries, recently announced that it has completed the acquisition of RL Stone Inc. Based in Syracuse, NY, RL Stone is a regional distributor of valves and instrumentation to the process market.

“We are excited to welcome the dedicated teammates, customers, and vendors of RL Stone to FCX Performance,” said Tom Cox, CEO of FCX. “Lou Betrus, Chris Bove, and their team have built RL Stone to be one of the leading flow control distributors in the Northeast. For over 90 years, R.L. Stone has provided customers with products in steam specialties, process control instrumentation, and HVAC systems.”

The combination of FCX and RL Stone increases the FCX footprint to 36 offices nationally all staffed with highly technical sales engineers that bring strong vendor relationships and deep product knowledge to a diverse customer base. The acquisition of RL Stone significantly increases the FCX’s presence and capabilities in the Northeast, bringing additional offices in Rochester and Buffalo, while expanding on its strong vendor partnerships.

Cox added, “This is FCX’s second acquisition in 30 days. We are committed to adding value to our customers and vendor partners by joining forces with the best flow control distributors around the country.”
