JB Industries (JB), a leading U.S. manufacturer of HVACR tools and accessories, completed its acquisition of C&D Valve (C&D) based in Oklahoma City. Both companies and their brands are expected to perform “business as usual” and continue to operate independently. The benefit to wholesalers and customers is a more expansive line of premier HVACR products and excellence in customer service.
C&D was founded in 1967 and is a U.S. manufacturer of high-quality valves, locking refrigerant caps, fittings and tools. Also, in 2017, C&D launched the TekEdge line of vacuum pumps, scales and leak detection products.
“The merging of our two companies and brands not only creates manufacturing synergy but brings two companies together who share core values," said C&D President Lance Gill. "Our combined beliefs of best-in-class manufacturing, on-time delivery of high-quality products, ease of doing business, and durable core products means continued rugged and reliable products to our end users. Both facilities take pride in being headquartered in the USA, which makes JB & C&D even more of a perfect combination.”
JB and C&D have established a 50-year plus track record of industry-leading design, expertise, innovation and manufacturing, providing customers with quality products that they trust and rely on. The strategic acquisition of these companies brings together resources and experience to work closely with customers and OEMs to help identify and develop new HVAC tools, valves and fittings to meet unique and demanding requirements.
“We continuously seek ways to improve our product offering to satisfy the needs of our wholesale customers," said JB President Jeff Cherif. "The addition of the C&D brand is another step to improve and expand our product portfolio. Our new line-up provides our wholesale customers and end users the most robust offering in the industry. Our excellence in customer support and service is what our customers have come to expect from both companies.”
