Privately held CRC Industries UK Ltd, based in Bridgwater, Somerset, UK, has acquired Action Can Ltd. based in St. Helens, Merseyside, UK, for an undisclosed amount. Following the acquisition, Action Can will operate as a division of CRC Industries UK.
CRC Industries UK is a subsidiary of CRC Industries Europe Bvba, which develops, manufactures and sells more than 170 maintenance chemicals, including lubricants, under the Ambersil brand in the UK and global industrial maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) markets.
Action Can manufactures a range of 60 industrial products, primarily industrial aerosols. The range covers all product types for the industrial market, including the well-known AC-90 multi-purpose lubricant.
“Our mission is to satisfy the needs of professional maintenance engineers for high quality specialty chemical products. This acquisition creates sustainable competitive advantage and adds value for our customers, enhancing our position in certain market segments where CRC UK is not present today, and strengthens our position in key global markets,” said Will McAlister, managing director of CRC UK.
