A-Gas has acquired Texas-based Diversified Purechem (DPC).
DPC is a leading reclaimer and supplier of refrigerant gases and has a national reach from 13 refrigerant collection and distribution hubs and their 40,000 sqft. separation and blending facility in Texas. DPC offers a full line of refrigerants including the leading technologies in HCFC and HFC replacements.
Monte Roach, President/CEO of A-Gas Americas, said: “DPC brings us best-in-class separation and blending capabilities along with a complimentary go-to-market approach and customer access. DPC brings a highly-experienced staff of 45 people that expand our industry knowledge and services. Our combined customers across the country will experience a significantly increased Total Solutions approach to their supply and reclamation needs.
“With the acquisition of Rapid Recovery in 2016 and the addition of DPC, A-Gas will become a clear leader in refrigerant recovery, reclaim and separation in the US. This is one more important step in creating an organization that delivers global expertise on a local scale.”
The acquisition marks the fifth in the US and the eighth worldwide since 2012 for A-Gas Group International, the UK-based parent company. It is also the first acquisition by A-Gas since KKR, a leading global investment firm, invested in the company in August 2017, in partnership with Group management, with the aim to further accelerate the growth of A-Gas.
