EDMONTON, Dec. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Supreme Group, the largest privately owned steel fabrication and construction business in Canada, has announced the full acquisition plans of Pro-V Mfg. Inc., located in Acheson, AB. As of January 1 st, 2013, Pro-V will become Pro-V Manufacturing LP, a proud member of the Supreme Group family of companies.
In early 2010, Supreme Group acquired a majority stake of Pro-V's operations with the option for future expansion of the shareholdings. Both companies have a long history of successful joint ventures, including the completion of numerous module projects for the industrial sector. Pro-V is an ASME code certified manufacturer with ABSA approved quality programs for their shop and field operations. These certifications extend from design and manufacture of pressure vessels, including their repair and alterations, to repair of boilers and green-field piping fabrication and installation.
As stated by John Leder, President and COO of Supreme Group to employees of Pro-V: "By this acquisition, Supreme Group includes an established and reputable mechanical company within the Group, and Pro-V Mfg. Inc. moves forward by its association with the largest privately held structural steel fabricator and constructor in Canada. In combination, we will be able to provide significant enhancements to our capacity to supply the burgeoning industrial sector in Alberta and beyond."
Greg Prinsen, President of Pro-V, will remain at the helm of the newly fully integrated operation. He is supported by a strong contingent of loyal office, plant and field forces that have already demonstrated compatible operations acumen with Supreme Group business culture and staff.Pro-V's existing plant is in close proximity to Supreme Group's newest fabrication plant and module yard also located in Acheson. Through increased demand in pipe fabrication services, Pro-V has expanded production into available shop space in Supreme Steel's Plant #1 facilities, situated on 184 th Street in West Edmonton.
