Compounding Growth: Ingersoll Rand Adds to Durability of Business with Two Acquisitions

  • Acquisitions complement Ingersoll Rand’s existing portfolio in the life science and air treatment businesses
  • Offer opportunities to grow market share with new revenue streams and access to new markets including in-vitro diagnostics, genomics, and sterile filter technology
  • Demonstrates company’s commitment to capital allocation and expected achievement of mid-teens return on invested capital (ROIC) by third full year of ownership

Ingersoll Rand Inc. (NYSE: IR), a global provider of mission-critical flow creation and industrial solutions, has closed on the acquisitions of Controlled Fluidics and Ethafilter s.r.l. (“Ethafilter”).

Controlled Fluidics, with two sites in the United States, specializes in thermoplastic, high-performance plastic bonding and custom plastic assembly products for life sciences, medical, aerospace, and industrial applications. The acquisition will complement Ingersoll Rand’s current life sciences offerings and increase the company’s market share in high-growth, sustainable end markets. The business will join the Precision and Science Technologies (P&ST) segment.

Based in Italy, Ethafilter primarily produces filters and filter elements that can be used with all major brands in the compressed air sector. The acquisition will expand Ingersoll Rand’s product portfolio, extend its reach in highly attractive end markets with the addition of sterile filter technology, and drive ongoing growth from aftermarket services and offerings. Ethafilter will join the Industrial Technologies and Services (IT&S) segment.

“The acquisitions of Controlled Fluidics and Ethafilter are the latest examples of our continued strategy to acquire adjacent technologies that will complement our core offerings and provide opportunities for growth,” said Vicente Reynal, chairman and chief executive officer of Ingersoll Rand. “We continue to compound our growth with strategic acquisitions that can ensure the durability of our business.”
