ETech makes a successful bid to acquire Superior Controls amid increasing demand for automation services in the life science industry.
Seabrook, NH – April 18, 2019 – Superior Controls, Inc., a leading Life Sciences control system integrator of custom industrial automation and IT solutions with 135 engineers and professionals on both the east and west coasts, today announced the company has been acquired by E-Technologies Group (ETech), an Ohio-based control system integration firm founded in 1993. ETech is owned by Falfurrias Capital Partners (FCP), a Charlotte-based private equity firm. ETech has also purchased Glenmount Global Services, headquartered in Austin, TX, in October of 2018. In April 2017, Superior Controls merged with Banks Integration Group, and the acquisition of the combined company is a strategic move by FCP to enhance the strengths and growth opportunities of its three industrial automation subsidiaries.
