CINCINNATI, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CECO Environmental Corp. (NasdaqGM: CECE), a leader in air pollution control technology systems, product recovery and filtration technology, announced that it has acquired Adwest Technologies, Inc. ("Adwest"), a leader in the design and manufacture of regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs) for the global air pollution control market.

Founded in 1988 and based in Anaheim, California, Adwest currently has 38 employees, over 800 RTO installations, generates $12 million in annual revenues and is a technological leader in the RTO market. CECO's global sales footprint will enable Adwest to significantly expand its RTO market share and international penetration.  The entire management team of Adwest, led by Craig Bayer, will continue in their roles and will become an important part of CECO's team. Details of the transaction can be found in the Company's current report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on January 7, 2013.

"The acquisition of Adwest is an excellent fit all around for CECO and our global customer base," commented Jeff Lang, CECO's Chief Executive Officer.  "The demand for RTOs is growing globally and the addition of Adwest's superior technology, admirable brand and technical management will significantly augment our global market strategies. Our RTO portfolios are clearly complimentary and will enhance our growth opportunities in North America, China and throughout the rest of the world.  Together, we will be able to provide our customers with unparalleled technologies to better solve their significant air pollution control requirements."

Phillip DeZwirek, CECO's Chairman commented, "We are very excited to be working with the Adwest Technologies team as we continue to expand our business and increase returns to all our shareholders."
