Nationwide Boiler Inc. has announced their acquisition of Pacific Combustion Engineering / Ponder Burner Company, which is the first buyout of another company in Nationwide Boiler’s 53-year history.
The acquisition of Pacific Combustion Engineering / Ponder Burner Company further increases Nationwide Boiler’s share in the industrial equipment market and expands the company’s coverage in the Pacific Northwest for rentals, sales and service.
“The combination of Pacific Combustion Engineering / Ponder Burner Company’s highly rated UL508A & 698A panel shop and engineering and fabrication capabilities, paired with Nationwide Boiler’s robust product line, will allow us to continue providing customers with the highest quality equipment in the industry,” said Larry Day, president and CEO of Nationwide Boiler.
In addition to expanded coverage in the region, the acquisition of Pacific Combustion Engineering / Ponder Burner Company will enhance Nationwide Boiler’s product offerings with the ability to provide control systems across multiple industries that utilize combustion equipment. The panel fabrication shop also has the ability to perform Factory Acceptance Testing.
Pacific Combustion Engineering / Ponder Burner Company will continue to operate under their current name. The division will be managed by Jack Valentine, who has worked closely with Nationwide Boiler for over seventeen years as their primary panel provider.
