PT&P Acquires U.S. Bellows, Inc.

September 1st, 1997 No comments

In July of 1997, Piping Technology & Products, Inc. acquired U.S. Bellows, Inc. from Ketema Process Equipment in California. As a part of the purchase, PT&P acquired all U.S. Bellows manufacturing equipment, all design and technical software, and the company’s historical files. During the month of July, PT&P personnel worked hard to move the manufacturing equipment from California to Houston. As a part of the transition, former U.S. Bellows engineers conducted a one-week training session at PT&P’s facility in Houston.

U.S. Bellows, Inc. has been servicing the industry since the 1960s and has a long history as a reliable expansion joint manufacturer. U.S. Bellows, Inc. will now operate as a division of Piping Technology & Products from our facility in Houston. U.S. Bellows will continue to offer the same expertise in expansion joint design, production, and customer service that has always been the PT&P trademark.

PT&P acquired R.M. Engineered Products metal expansion joint business in 1995 and relocated that equipment to our 15 acre manufacturing facility in Houston, Texas. The R.M. Engineered Products equipment and the newly acquired U.S. Bellows operating machinery combine to make U.S. Bellows and Piping Technology & Products among the most capable expansion joint/metallic bellows manufacturers in the world.
