WEST Acquires L-K Industries, Adding Key Houston Location
Western Energy Support & Technology, Inc. (WEST), an authority in flow measurement testing, calibration, consulting, and infrastructure, announced today that it has acquired substantially all the assets of L-K Industries, a leading manufacturer of oil centrifuges and petroleum sampling and measurement equipment.
L-K Industries, based in Houston, Texas, joins the other companies under the WEST umbrella. These companies all share a proven history in flow measurement calibration and test services and products for the oil and gas, automotive, aerospace, and power generation industries. The addition of L-K Industries to the WEST family creates sales synergies across the companies by broadening the mix of services, products, and software available.
“We are excited to welcome L-K Industries into the WEST family,” stated Mike Carter, CEO, WEST. “In addition to its nearly 90-year history of designing and building products with the highest standards, L-K Industries offers a deep portfolio that complements the capabilities of the WEST companies, especially in the areas of calibration, testing, sampling, and remote monitoring and measurement. Furthermore, many of WEST’s key customers are based in the greater Houston area and adding a physical office there will make us more accessible to these customers.”
“This move allows us to build upon the elements that have made L-K Industries successful,” explained Eric Calderon, President of L-K Industries.
