January 14, 2021 – Shermco Industries Inc. has acquired Ready Engineering, a specialty provider of electrical, controls and industrial information systems based in Alberta and Olympia, Wash.
Ready specializes in design and field engineering, power system designs, NERC/CIP compliance testing, control system installations and upgrades, and other engineering services.
Shermco (Irving, Texas) provides electrical testing, maintenance, commissioning and repair services to a range of utility, industrial, energy and other end markets.
“The acquisition delivers on our strategic objective of expanding our specialty electrical engineering capabilities to our customers across our core service offerings,” said Tom Bartolomei, Shermco CEO. “The acquisition provides us with further depth in power, transmission & distribution, and oil & gas system protection.”
“Joining Shermco provides exposure to the North American market that we simply can’t develop on our own,” said Jeff Whitt, Ready president. “Combining the engineering skills we’ve developed over our 25-year existence with Shermco’s expertise and reputation will allow us to make stronger offers to a broader range of clients.”
The Ready management team will remain with the company following the acquisition.
