“We welcome the employees, customers and vendors of Pierce Pump to the FCX family”, said Charles M. Simon, CEO of FCX Performance, Inc. “We are very impressed by the caliber of the Pierce Pump staff as well as Don and Jim Reece, the former owners of Pierce who will continue to run the newly acquired business on a day to day business. Simon further added “that the two companies have very similar cultures that emphasize customer service, vendor relationships and a focus on providing long-term, rewarding growth opportunities for our associates”.

Charles Hale, FCX President, noted that “Pierce Pump fits perfectly with our strategy of buying quality process flow control distribution and service providers that further expand our served geography and service & solution offerings.” He concluded by adding “that we anticipate closing additional acquisitions in FY 2013 with the support of Harvest Partners, our majority shareholder”.
