Acquires specialty engineering business based in Washington state, Canada

Shermco Industries, Inc., announced January 12 it has acquired Ready Engineering, the specialty engineering business based in Alberta, Canada and Olympia, Washington and a provider of electrical,controls and industrial information systems. “The combination of Shermco and Ready immediately provides the firm’s collective customers with a unique and market-leading bundled services offering, while simultaneously broadening Shermco’s reach into new and developing markets,” Shermco claimed in the press release.

The Ready management team will remain with the company following the acquisition.

“Shermco is very pleased to welcome Ready to the family. The acquisition delivers on our strategic objective of expanding our specialty electrical engineering capabilities to our customers across our core service offerings. As the leading independent provider of electrical testing, maintenance, and repair services in North America, Shermco is also focused on marketleading electrical and engineering capabilities. The acquisition provides us with further depth in power, transmission and distribution, and oil and gas system protection,” said Tom Bartolomei, Shermco CEO.

Ready’s specialty services include design and field engineering, power system designs, control system installations and upgrades, software verification and validation, commissioning, start-up support, generator testing and dynamic modeling, NERC/CIP, protection coordination, substation protection and CEMS automation.

Lee Ready, founder of the Ready companies, said, “The Ready group has been looking for a partner just like Shermco, with complementary operations in the United States and Canada, a strong marketing team, and deep administrative support that our engineering teams can leverage to do what they do best – engineering. We are very fortunate to have found such a perfect fit and are excited about the opportunities this presents for all our engineering groups.”

“We are excited to combine Ready’s niche skills with Shermco’s national reputation. Joining Shermco provides exposure to the North American market that we simply can’t develop on our own,” said Jeff Whitt, Ready’s 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.”
