Strahman Valves acquires BI-TORQ Valve Automation

CID Capital is pleased to announce that Strahman Valves, a CID portfolio company and leading producer of engineered process valves and wash down equipment, has successfully acquired BI-TORQ Valve Automation, a leading actuated valve manufacturer for process industries located in the western suburbs of Chicago, IL.

The acquisition provides Strahman with the capability to design, manufacture and supply a wider range of valve products and actuation equipment, particularly thermal shut-off valves used in fire protection systems.  BI-TORQ will continue to operate from its facility in Illinois, with Strahman making additional investments in sales, marketing and operational infrastructure.  The entire BI-TORQ team will continue on in their roles under Strahman ownership.

Dave Marut, CEO of BI-TORQ, said "We move into this next stage with tremendous pride in what we have built over the past four decades. This merger ensues that our legacy of hard work, quality products and outstanding customer service will continue well into the future.

The acquisition of BI-TORQ was the culmination of many months of work between CID and Strahman to grow through acquisition.  Augie Percoco, CEO of Strahman, said "CID assisted us greatly in identifying the BI-TORQ opportunity and completing the acquisition.  This acquisition is a perfect complement to Strahman's strategic plan and adds significant value to our Company.  We are thrilled to welcome the BI-TORQ team to the Strahman family."
