Lamons, a TriMas Corporation subsidiary, completed a $9.6-million acquisition of Wulfrun Specialised Fasteners Ltd. The latter is a British company that designs and manufactures specialized bolting systems and CNC machined parts for use in heat-resistant, pressure-resistant, or corrosion-resistant applications. Among its customer groups are the oil-and-gas, pipeline, and power industries.
Houston-based Lamons is a gasket, fastener, and specialty bolt manufacturer for petroleum refining, petrochemical, power generation, and pulp and paper industries.
“This new acquisition enhances our capabilities throughout Europe,” stated Lamons president Kurt Allen. “The ability to provide specialty bolts to new and existing customers, as well as the ability to supply gaskets to existing Wulfrun customers provides Lamons with additional growth opportunities throughout Europe.”
In recent years Lamons opened several sales and service branches around the world to serve its global customers better.
Also, last July it bought CIFAL Industrial e Comercial Ltda., and in January of this year it acquired Gasket Vedações Técnicas Ltda. Both are Brazilian companies; the first produces specialty screws, bolts, cases, washers, anchors, threaded bars, nuts, and similar parts; and the second produces ring-type joints for drilling, and other gaskets for refining and petrochemical production.
