Valleyfield-based Liquiteck acquired by Eastern Canada’s largest industrial process automation supplier, Laurentide Controls

KIRKLAND, Quebec, April 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Laurentide Controls, the largest supplier of industrial process automation solutions in Eastern Canada, announced today the acquisition of Liquiteck, a prominent industrial pump distributor.

This acquisition represents the latest step in Laurentide’s growth, consolidating its position as a major player in the changing industrial ecosystem. As the Emerson Impact Partner for its territory, Laurentide’s core offering consists of process valves, instrumentation, process automation software and industrial reliability solutions including training.

In the past 5 years, the Kirkland-based company has bought two valve repair facilities, launched a reliability software spin-off and opened a state-of-the-art remote condition monitoring center in Saint John’s, NL. Adding industrial pumps to its portfolio strengthens Laurentide’s position in its market with a more complete offering and reaffirms its stated purpose, which is to help industry thrive in Eastern Canada.

"Everywhere there is a valve regulating flow in a pipe and a flow meter measuring it, there is a pump generating that flow. This acquisition presents a strategic opportunity for both organizations to capitalize on our strengths and foster synergies that drive innovation and elevate our value proposition for customers."

  • Steve Dustin, President and CEO, Laurentide Controls
