Portsmouth, N.H. — Anvil International, one of the largest and most complete manufacturers of pipe fittings, pipe hangers and piping support systems in the world, announced that it has acquired substantially all of the assets of North Alabama Pipe Corporation (NAP), a leading provider of pipe fabrication equipment and fire protection fabrication equipment. This acquisition enhances Anvil International's product lines to offer state-of-the-art fabrication equipment.
“The acquisition of NAP strengthens Anvil's product offerings,” said Tom Fish, president of Anvil International. “We look forward to providing our customers with a single-source solution for pipe joining products and pipe fabrication equipment.”
Founded in 1983, NAP is a manufacturer of fire sprinkler fabrication equipment, including automatic welders, plasma cut-off equipment, hole cutting equipment, make-on machines and pipe threaders. NAP also manufactures outlets for the fire sprinkler market.
“Customers will continue to receive the highest level of quality products and customer service they have come to expect from Anvil and North Alabama Pipe. This acquisition will allow NAP, which will continue to operate under that name, to offer its fabrication equipment to markets other than fire protection.” said Dean Taylor, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Anvil International.
Headquartered in Guntersville, Alabama, with 23 employees, NAP first made a name for itself when it developed the innovative “Hole System” that allows a plasma cutter to make holes in pipe — a process that has become the industry standard.
