Smyrna, Tennessee-based clamps manufacturer Ideal Tridon Group has acquired Advanced Couplings Limited (ACL), the company announced April 5. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 1986, ACL is a manufacturer and distributor of stainless steel clamp-type tube connections based in Roscommon, Ireland. ACL primarily serves the food, pharmaceutical and associated process industries.

“We are very excited for our partnership with Ideal Tridon,” ACL Sales Director Shaun Henry said in a news release. “Ideal Tridon’s commitment to service and their dedication to quality makes for a great fit with ACL’s mission. We know that our customers will benefit from the combination of our companies, allowing us to leverage Ideal’s existing global footprint, product line, and engineering capabilities. We are proud of the reputation that ACL has earned over the past 35 years and will be able to continue to strengthen our capabilities to better serve our customers.”

“We are thrilled to have ACL join our Ideal Tridon family,” Ideal Tridon CEO Rick Stepien said in the release. “Bringing our companies together will allow us to expand into new geographies and extend our portfolio offerings into new and existing markets.”

Ideal Tridon announced in February that it promoted Corey Waddoups to President of Ideal Clamp Products — North America.
