Eclipse Inc. has acquired Cleveland-based CEC Combustion Safety (CEC), a combustion safety consulting and training firm.

Eclipse, headquartered in Rockford, Ill., intends to operate CEC Combustion Safety as an independent organization, providing the CEC Combustion Safety business with the infrastructure and resources to grow its already dominant market position in safety-related combustion services.

Part of what makes CEC Combustion Safety special in our market is our objectivity when it comes to safety,” says John Puskar, president of CEC Combustion Safety. "Safety is first, and adherence to codes and standards is our primary focus. We will continue to operate without bias. We don’t care whose system is installed for a combustion application as long as it is safe, well-maintained and meets applicable industry standards."

Puskar will continue to lead the CEC Combustion Safety business unit, which will operate out of its Cleveland facility.
