Gibraltar Strengthens Position As Supplier To Western Canada Oil & Gas Production Industry

Stocks in this article: ROCK

Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: ROCK), a leading manufacturer and distributor of products for building and industrial markets, today announced that it has acquired the metal grating fabrication and distribution business of privately held Edvan Industries Inc. Based near Edmonton, Alberta, Edvan Industries has served Western Canada’s oil and gas production industry as a stocking distributor of metal grating products for Gibraltar’s AMICO subsidiary since 1978. The company’s sales for 2011 were approximately US$5 million. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“Acquiring Edvan Industries’ metal grating business solidifies our position in one of North America’s fastest-growing areas for oil and gas production,” said Gibraltar Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brian Lipke. “Edvan Industries has done an exceptional job meeting the demands of our customers in the Canadian oil and gas industry for more than 30 years. Adding its metal grating products business assets and outstanding employee team to Gibraltar’s provides us with a stronger, more vertically integrated presence in a market that we have strategically targeted for growth.”

“The Western Canada oil sands region represents approximately $120 billion in current oil and gas projects,” said Gibraltar President and Chief Operating Officer Henning Kornbrekke. “Integrating Edvan Industries’ fabricated metal grating business into the AMICO organization will be a bolt-on process that creates important sales synergies for Gibraltar, strengthening our ability to serve customers and compete for a larger share of this important market.”
