Ben Ehrens, CEO and President of Golden, Colorado-based Tribologix, is expected to stay on with the company as a consultant, according to the announcement.

“Tribologix’s high-tech, cutting-edge coatings and extensive testing have made it a trusted name in surface engineering for extreme environment applications, where the elimination of friction and wear is a mission-critical factor for non-serviceable mechanical components,” said AIM MRO CEO Scott Wandtke. “We’re excited to add these products to our suite of state-of-the-art offerings. We look forward to working with Ben and his dedicated team to better serve our new and existing customers.”
