Westmor Industries acquires fuel handling equipment builder Determan Brownie

MORRIS - Westmor Industries announced Monday they have acquired Determan Brownie, a privately held company headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn. The new division of Westmor Industries will be known as Westmor Fluid Solutions and will maintain a manufacturing and service facility in Northwest Minneapolis.

"While both companies serve and sell products into similar industries, we historically have not manufactured many competing product lines," says John LaFontsee, General Manager of the newly formed Westmor Fluid Solutions, "The new partnership creates some pretty exciting synergies in product and service that will bolster Westmor's position as a major manufacturer and supplier of fuel handling systems, parts and service."

Founded in 1964, Determan Brownie manufactures and services an extensive line of fluid handling equipment and systems. Their diverse business performs refined fuel terminal modifications, employs service teams for pump and meter repair, proving, calibration and inspection. The 48-year-old Minnesota Company supports customers in aviation, refineries, pipelines, terminals, utilities and government agencies.
