Louisville, Kentucky-based Sypris Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions Inc., announced Sept. 15 that it has acquired the intellectual property rights for the rapid opening closure (ROC) product line from Pipeline Engineering and Supply Co. Ltd., located in Catterick, UK. The terms and conditions of the transaction were not disclosed.

The purchase of the intellectual property provides Sypris with the exclusive right to use the purchased IP to manufacture and sell the ROC product line to end users globally, including those in the oil, gas, petrochemical and industrial markets.

The transaction combines certain of the flow assurance products of PE, with over 50 years of installed base, with the Tube Turns brand of products from Sypris, which has been manufacturing and selling highly engineered competing products for use in strategic oil, gas and petrochemical infrastructure projects around the world for over 60 years.

“The strategic fit of the ROC product line with our portfolio of closures is perfect,” said Brett Keener, general manager of Sypris. “We have a long history of supporting the project and service needs of our global customers. The ROC product line will expand our market presence in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, further enhancing our ability to serve our customers.”

Sypris Technologies Tube Turns Products is a global leader in the manufacture of custom engineered products for high pressure critical applications serving multiple industries such as the oil and gas pipeline, hydrocarbon and petrochemical processing, food, pharmaceutical, water and utility since 1927.
