GLENDALE HEIGHTS -- KKSP Precision Machining said it has acquired Grove Industries, a manufacturer of primarily brass machined metal hose fittings and adapters on automatic screw machines.
Terms of the acquisition were not announced.
Grove manufactures a range of custom and standard catalog fittings, in addition to other screw machine products, sold into a wide range of hose products applications. The company, founded in 1974, operates a single facility in Bensenville.
"Grove manufactures a variety of complementary parts, and by combining resources, we can expand upon their strong presence in the hose fittings business with additional capabilities and product line enhancements over time," said KKSP President Dave Dolan.
KKSP Chairman Chuck Spears added that the acquisition lets KKSP expand "its overall platform to include a line of proprietary fittings and assemblies sold primarily to new customers and applications, and further diversifies the overall business while also adding a new channel for growth."
