Tencarva Machinery Company, Greensboro, N.C., (about $100 million in annual sales) has acquired the Municipal Division of emoryWilson Company, a pump distribution company, effective May 1, 2006.
Tencarva’s municipal division includes Tencarva’s current municipal group in Arkansas and Tennessee, as well as the territory of the former emoryWilson Municipal Division, which covers North Carolina, South Carolina, most of Virginia and a few counties in northeastern Tennessee.
‘Since Tencarva has facilities in various locations throughout the Southeast, we see an excellent opportunity for growth by being able to make these pump packages readily available on short notice for plumbing contractors,’ said Rod Lee, Tencarva president. ‘Our service capabilities will also enhance the municipal offerings in this area.’
