Luxfer Gas Cylinders is excited to announce today the acquisition of Structural Composites Industries, a North American composite cylinder manufacturer.
The acquisition strengthens Luxfer’s composite cylinder offering and aligns with recent investments to further enhance our alternative fuels capability to address the CNG and Hydrogen market growth opportunities, as well as broadening our portfolio in aerospace, life support and other markets.
The newly acquired business, based in Pomona CA, joins our existing facilities in Riverside CA, Graham NC, Nottingham UK, Calgary Canada, and Shanghai China. The business will become an integral part of Luxfer Gas Cylinders, and all products will transition to the Luxfer brand name.
"This addition significantly enhances our product offering and fortifies our capabilities in both alternative fuels and aerospace applications. The newly combined business will result in higher levels of innovation, expanded manufacturing capacity and enhanced service offerings to our customers worldwide. We welcome our new employees to the Luxfer team," said Alok Maskara, Luxfer Chief Executive Officer.
"The Luxfer Gas Cylinders brand and product offering is synonymous with quality, reliability and innovation, and the acquisition will further strengthen this, providing synergies in operations, technology and sales," stated Andy Butcher, President of Luxfer Gas Cylinders. “We look forward to providing all our customers with an expanded product portfolio, as well as the high levels of service and technical expertise that they have come to expect from Luxfer, the world’s leading provider of high-pressure carbon composite and aluminum cylinders."
