ISS is building a national provider of industrial field services, repair and refurbishment of equipment found in most industrial and manufacturing facilities in North America. This market is extremely fragmented, making it difficult for major industrial companies to find a reliable single source of repair and maintenance services for mission critical equipment. Equipment in which ISS has particular expertise includes valves, actuators, motors/generators, pumps and compressors that are critical to maintaining plant operations and minimizing downtime. Since inception, ISS completed fifteen acquisitions and maintains over 25 service and distribution locations across the U.S. with over 500 skilled technicians. This combination of human and physical assets enables ISS to offer a broad and valuable set of solutions to its expansive customer base. The company maintains a robust pipeline of complementary companies that should continue the current pace of expansion and profitable growth.
