Global Power Equipment Group Inc. has reported that it has acquired privately-owned IBI. IBI Power is a provider of custom power packaging and integration solutions, including packaged control house systems, generator enclosures and industrial tanks.

The purchase price of $19.5m in cash is subject to final working capital adjustments.

“IBI Power and our Koontz-Wagner business represent an ideal synergistic combination. It furthers our reach into midstream oil and gas applications, switchgear OEMs and distributed power. This is the fastest growing area of our business currently and the acquisition immediately provides us additional capacity for this growth,” commented Luis Manuel Ramirez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Global Power.

“With this acquisition, we accomplish our goal of achieving a number one or two position in the solutions we offer for the packaged controls business,” concluded Mr. Ramirez.

Headquartered in Caldwell, Idaho, IBI Power had approximately $26.6m of revenue in 2012. IBI Power has approximately 150 employees between the two facilities in Caldwell, Idaho and Chattanooga, Tennessee.
