Baton Rouge-based industrial pipe manufacturer EPIC Piping announced last week that it has acquired Minnesota-based BendTec Fabrication & Bending.

BendTec, which has been in business for more than 100 years, is one of the premier pipe bending companies in the Western Hemisphere, according to EPIC’s announcement. The acquisition increases EPIC’s global production footprint and expands the company’s capabilities in the energy, renewables and infrastructure sectors.

The transaction also expands EPIC’s production capabilities with the addition of BendTec’s existing plants.

Remi Bonnecaze, EPIC CEO, says the deal is part of the firm’s strategic growth plan and efforts to improve its market position. BendTec sales manager David Meierhoff will remain in a leadership role at BendTec as director of operations. See the announcement.
