Chris Pascarella, President and CEO, Enprotech Corp stated: “The entire organization is extremely excited to add American Hydro to our collective portfolio of businesses focused on the maintenance, repair, rebuild and modernization of heavy industrial equipment. American Hydro expands our industry segmentation into the renewable energy sector, a key growth category for Enprotech Corp. Additionally, American Hydro has remarkable technical capabilities that will strengthen our entire organization.”
Subject to approvals, completion of the transaction is expected in first half of 2023.
