Based in Seattle, Washington, Sharpe Mixers has served customers for the past 60 years and provides advanced mixing solutions in the chemical, industrial and sanitary markets. Hayward Gordon intends to make significant investment in plant, equipment and people in Sharpe’s Seattle plant to better serve customers in the global market.
Jay Dinnison commented on the transaction, “We are proud of our achievements at Sharpe Mixers, and are excited about the future growth opportunities that this partnership brings to our organization.”
Hayward Gordon, headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada designs, manufactures and distributes mixers, pumps, and engineered systems for challenging fluid handling applications in a range of industries including: food, water, mining, chemical, oil & gas, mineral processing, and wastewater treatment. A controlling interest in Hayward Gordon was previously acquired by Element Partners and it serves as a platform for acquisitions of pump and mixer manufacturers focused on abrasive, harsh duty, or other engineered fluid handling applications.
John Hayward, EVP of Hayward Gordon commented on the acquisition of Sharpe, “The fit between the two businesses is well aligned from both a product and market standpoint. Sharpe brings strength in small to medium-sized mixers and in chemical, industrial, pharmaceutical, and sanitary markets whereas Hayward Gordon has been strong in medium to large mixers in mineral processing, oil & gas, and water/wastewater treatment. The addition of Sharpe accelerates our expansion in the U.S. chemical, industrial, pharmaceutical, and sanitary markets with a more complete product offering.”
Bill Dubé, CEO of Hayward Gordon, commented on the transaction, “We are delighted with the excellent synergies for the combined entity. The product fit between Hayward Gordon and Sharpe is complementary and we now offer a broader range of mixers from 1/3 HP to 500 HP. In addition, our combined sales channels will allow us to better serve our markets and support customer’s needs.”
