Enerquip LLC has acquired American Heating Co. Inc., a manufacturer of industrial hot oil heaters, tank heating coils and other industrial heating systems, as a wholly owned subsidiary.

Former AHC owners Joseph Tessitore has joined Enerquip as director of operations at AHC while former AHC Barry Weiner has retired. “We’re so excited for the future of American Heating,” says Tessitore. “Enerquip’s values, culture and history of success, make them the perfect buyers of AHC.”

Enerquip’s acquisition positions the company in the industrial carbon steel market, one it has not served before. The AHC manufacturing facility in Beggs, Okla., will continue to specialize in serpentine radiant coils and steam generators made of carbon steel. Enerquip’s Medford, Wis.-based headquarters and manufacturing facility will continue to focus on stainless-steel heat exchangers and sanitary vessels.
