Windjammer Capital-backed Engineered Controls International LLC has acquired Superior Holding LLC.
Superior, headquartered in Cleveland and Kirkland, Wash., manufactures flow control products used in the transportation, delivery and storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and industrial gasses under the Macro and Superior brand names.
Like Superior, Elon, N.C.-based Engineered Controls makes engineered flow control valves that are used in LNG production under the RegO and Goddard brand names.
The deal broadens Engineered Controls’ product offering and brings the company further into the liquefied natural gas market.
The buyer is backed by private equity firm Windjammer, which has invested more than $1.2 billion in more than 50 companies since it was founded in 1990. The company’s investments are usually between $50 million and $200 million. Windjammer invested in Engineered Controls in December. The firm closed a $726 million fund in March.
