ITW is integrating its Binks, DeVilbiss, Ransburg, and BGK brands into one new operating unit, ITW Finishing Equipment Americas. The consolidation was made to take advantage of the synergies between the four groups, all of which supply finishing equipment for industry.
"A complete finishing system might include Ransburg electrostatic guns, Binks fluid management controls and a BGK infrared oven curing stations. It only makes sense to pull those ITW assets together under one banner and offer customers a totally integrated and compatible system that works together for maximum efficiency," said Tom White, vice president and general manager of ITW Finishing Equipment Americas, states,
Prior to this operations change, the four companies operated and sold their equipment independent of one another. “Each was a separate unit, with separate sales representatives selling through separate distribution channels. With the integration of these entities we’ll be able to leverage cost efficiencies while enhancing service levels and improving technical sales support,” White said.
