Motion and Flow Control Products, Inc., Denver, CO, a distributor of fluid connectors, fluid power equipment, instrumentation products and seals, has acquired the assets of MD Hose & Fittings LLC, Sidney, MT. The acquisition gives MFCP its first location in the Bakken Oil Field, a 200,000-square-mile shale formation in North Dakota and Montana.
Motion and Flow Control Products serves industrial customers in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Washington and California. It operates 23 ParkerStores throughout 11 western states.
John Niemi, president and CEO of Motion and Flow Control Products, says the company will be deploying all of its capabilities for motion and flow control products, giving the new location a dramatically expanded offering of Parker Hannifin products and MFCP technology, product lines, service and repair. “MD Hose and Fittings focused on industrial hose, hydraulic hose and fittings,” Niemi says, “but now we’ll also be able to serve OEM and MRO customers with direct access to the Parker industrial products, along with complementary product offerings and factory-trained personnel.”
Randy Iversen, owner of MD Hose and Fittings, will remain with the company after the acquisition, serving as branch manager.
