anair Manufacturing acquires Air-N-Arc™ All-In-One Power Systems™
Michigan City, Indiana, June 11, 2009 - Vanair Manufacturing is pleased to announce the company has reached an agreement for the acquisition of Air N Arc, Inc. Air N Arc operations will relocate to Vanair’s new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Michigan City, Indiana from their current facility in Hiawatha, Kansas. To assure a seamless transition President Vince Eck, Sales Manager Dean Strathman, and Production Manager Don Stone will be joining Vanair as part of the acquisition. Along with these key personnel, Vanair will maintain the current Air N Arc product line and dealer network. This will ensure that customers, dealers and distributors will experience no disruption in the support and service of Air N Arc products.
Air N Arc Mfg. has a complete line of Welder/Generator/Air Compressor/DC Booster combination packages that are specially tailored for the work truck industry. All of their All-In-One Power Systems are designed to mount into standard service bodies without body modification and allow the user easy access to controls and utilities. The systems include Gasoline, Diesel and Hydraulically driven systems.
“Both companies have pioneered markets and developed innovative products and technologies within their respective industries. Due to the strengths that the two companies have and synergies between their product lines, we feel that this move will bring even more innovative solutions to the work truck industry.” Vince Eck concluded.
With the addition of Air N Arc into the Vanair family of products, the company will now be able to offer products that meet all the features customers would need in the field. Vanair President, Greg Kokot explains, “The acquisition of Air N Arc provides us an excellent opportunity to offer a product segment which we were not currently offering. The “All in One” compressor/generator/welder/DC booster packages that Air N Arc manufacturers is a natural and complimentary extension of Vanair’s existing product line.” Kokot concluded, “With this acquisition our dealers/distributors and their end customers can know with full confidence that with one call they can find the right product which best meets their application.”
Ralph Kokot, CEO of Vanair states, “Air N Arc enhances Vanair's position in the market with the most comprehensive line of vehicle-mounted power solutions available. Vanair's financial strength will provide the necessary resources for further product development for the Air N Arc family of products. Dealers and distributors will now have the benefits of true one-stop-shopping for all of the vehicle-mounted power applications.”
