Waukesha Bearings, an operating company of Dover Corporation acquired Inpro/Seal Company, the leading designer and manufacturer of bearing isolator technologies, effective December 30, 2009. Inpro/Seal is based in Rock Island, Illinois.
"After much consideration, I felt Waukesha Bearings was the best strategic fit for Inpro/Seal. As leaders in our respective markets, Waukesha and Inpro/Seal share similar value propositions of delivering premium technology and superior service to our customers," said David Orlowski, Founder of Inpro/Seal.
The acquisition of Inpro/Seal adds adjacent product lines to Waukesha's market-leading bearing solutions for oil & gas and power generation markets. The Inpro/seal brand has been highly successful in North America, and the addition of Waukesha's global footprint provides opportunities for growth internationally.
