De Pere, Wisconsin-based Fluid System Components (FSC) has acquired Norcan Fluid Power, the company announced May 1. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 1974, Norcan is a distributor of fluid power and pneumatic products and service based in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Norcan is the authorized distributor of Bosch Rexroth in Western Canada and operates eight branches across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
“Norcan’s long-standing reputation for providing superior fluid power solutions aligns with our core values of ingenuity, competence, dependability, and reliability,” FSC CEO Chad Trinkner said in a news release. “This acquisition provides an excellent opportunity for both companies to grow and thrive together.”
After the acquisition is finalized, Norcan will become a division of FSC and will be the only distributor of the Bosch Rexroth product line to span both the U.S. and Canada, according to the release.
“Both companies have a great relationship with Bosch Rexroth,” Trinkner said. “Working together, we’ll be able to strengthen our ability to provide unmatched collective engineering expertise and take our customer service capabilities to the next level — being there from the beginning, supporting them along the way after installation and helping them with timely transitions to new Rexroth technologies when they come into the market.”
With locations in De Pere and New Berlin, Wisconsin, FSC serves industries including logging and forestry, construction, paper mills, in-plant systems and industrial automation in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
