NAPERVILLE, IL – Nalco has announced the acquisition of substantially all of the businesses and assets of Fabrication Technologies Inc., Casper, WY. Renamed Nalco Fab-Tech LLC, the company employs 60 people and designs, fabricates and installs complex injection and fluid-treatment facilities. Additionally, Nalco Fab-Tech offers onsite commissioning, startup and operator training services.

Nalco Fab-Tech supplies enhanced oil recovery (EOR) mixing and injection equipment for alkali surfactant polymer, polymer, water and CO2 injection facilities throughout the United States and Canada. The acquisition of Nalco Fab-Tech allows Nalco to complete its integrated EOR solutions platform, started in 2008 with the formation of TIORCO, a joint-venture company between Nalco Co. and Stepan Co.

The acquisition of Nalco Fab-Tech brings engineering, project management and fabrication capabilities to complement Nalco’s existing water-treatment-process expertise across a broad spectrum of industries. Nalco is now in a unique position to offer environmentally and economically sound solutions to oil and gas companies facing the challenge of using, treating and recycling produced water. In other industries, Nalco Fab-Tech complements other acquisitions completed recently by Nalco's Water and Process Services division to extend its services and offerings.
