Dixon acquires Eagle America

Dixon has announced the acquisition of Eagle America, Inc. Established in 1979, Eagle America is a manufacturer of gate and globe bellows seal valves. The products are designed to control hazardous media such as chlorine gas, regulated fluids, purity gases, cryogenics, heat transfer fluids, and steam.
The company’s products, which are sold under the Eagle America brand name, are used extensively in applications where environmental control and safety are of critical importance – particularly in the petroleum refining, chemical processing, nuclear power generation, solar energy, and pulp and paper segments.

Eagle America products are recognized for their ability to control hazardous media in environments where leak-free emissions control is an absolute necessity. In addition, the company provides engineering and design material consultation services.

Eagle America will become a division of Dixon. Its manufacturing facilities, administrative offices and employees will remain in Rhode Island. Raymond F. Grandchamp, Jr., Eagle America’s president at the time of the acquisition, will become part of the new management team.

Bob Grace, president of Dixon, reported that the acquisition of Eagle America aligns with Dixon’s strategic focus on energy technologies, as well as expanding the range of standard and engineered products and services it offers to the oil and gas, power generation, and chemical processing industry segments.

“Not only is this a close strategic fit for our respective companies, Eagle America products have a well-deserved reputation for performance and reliability. We are pleased to add these top-quality valves and capabilities to our product mix,” Grace said.
