PACIFIC, Mo. (March 2, 2016) – Fueling equipment maker Husky Corp. has completed the asset acquisition of S.U.R.& R. of Akron, a supplier of fuel, brake, air conditioning and transmission fluid line repair kits as well as automotive aftermarket specialty tools.
Husky said the acquisition is part of its “strategy as the industry leader in petroleum dispensing nozzles and related equipment to serve customer needs in the broader transportation sector.
“Husky is excited to be part of future growth in the fluid transfer business,” said Husky Corp. President Grenville Sutcliffe. “The S.U.R.&R. product line features the right combination of high quality and exceptional value that our customers have grown to expect.”
