ITT to acquire Laing GmbH, broadening portfolio of energy-efficient plumbing and HVAC pumps

ITT Corporation announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Laing GmbH of Germany, a privately-held leading producer of energy-efficient circulator pumps primarily used in residential and commercial plumbing and heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Once completed, the acquisition will significantly broaden ITTs offering and will reflect the companys continued strategic focus on satisfying the markets growing demand for energy efficiency and lower life-cycle costs.

The addition of Laings energy-efficient circulators to ITTs product portfolio significantly expands our offering to customers in the HVAC industry, said Gretchen McClain, president of ITTs Fluid and Motion Control business. Upon completion of the acquisition, ITT will be able to offer customers a comprehensive range of high-performance and green pump technology and products that meet more stringent energy standards.

The combination of Laing with ITTs building services business is a logical step in our evolution, said Oliver Laing, chief executive officer of Laing. The strength of ITTs brands and their commitment to leading edge technology means that we will have even more resources to develop new and innovative products for our customers, and expand our global reach.

Laings energy-efficient A-class circulator pumps are an ideal match for our own HVAC products for the building services market, particularly with our Lowara and Flygt brands in Europe and Bell & Gossett in the Americas, said Ken Napolitano, ITTs President of Residential and Commercial Water business.
