OPW, a global leader in fluid-handling solutions and a business unit within Dover's Fluids segment, has acquired Fairbanks Environmental Ltd. in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, UK. Fairbanks is a global leader in providing fuel management services to the retail and commercial fueling industry.
David Crouse, President of OPW said, "The acquisition of Fairbanks will expand OPW’s end-to-end solutions, providing our customers with integrated around-the-clock fuel monitoring and data analysis as an option within the larger OPW suite of products and services. By providing this additional capability, we can help customers detect and eliminate fuel loss, reduce operating costs, improve profitability and meet environmental and regulatory requirements. Protecting people and the environment is a key tenet for OPW, and we can further support that mission with the addition of Fairbanks.”
Steve Jones, one of Fairbanks’ founding members, said, “Today’s announcement is an important milestone for Fairbanks as we join forces with OPW, a major brand name within the industry. This union promises an exciting future as we embark on the next stage of the Fairbanks journey.”
Antoine Soulier, recently appointed Managing Director of Fairbanks said, “Fairbanks is excited to join the OPW team. With its global footprint, OPW provides a great opportunity to expand Fairbanks’ products and services into new markets and regions.”
