Elliott Completes Ebara Merger

This EIC Cryo LX10-16, 4-stage cryogenic upward flow expander is installed in a floating LNG facility.

Elliott Group has completed the merger of Ebara International Corp., based in Sparks, Nevada, USA, with its operations in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA. Integrating the operations of Ebara International Corp., which manufactures customengineered cryogenic pumps and expanders under the Cryodynamics brand for the liquefied gas industry, into Elliott Group began in October 2017. (See Gas Compression Magazine, December 2017, p. 26.)

Cryodynamics pumps and expanders are now manufactured at Elliott’s global headquarters and factory in Jeannette. In support of the merger, Elliott Group plans to break ground on a cryogenic product testing facility close to its headquarters.

Elliott Group supplies customengineered refrigeration compressors for baseload LNG plants as well as a full line of rotating equipment for refining and petrochemical applications. Shared synergies in markets, product lines, and customer base was the impetus for the merger. Elliott Group will maintain the Cryodynamics brand.

“The merger of Ebara International Corporation with Elliott is a good fit. Elliott has been working closely with them for the past year-and-a-half to ensure continuity of expertise, service, and quality for existing and new customers and business partners,” said Michael Lordi, Chief Executive Officer of Elliott Group. “We are excited about this addition to Elliott’s product lines, and pleased that the merger is now complete.”

Ebara International Corp. will continue to operate under that name and will be one of four business units within Elliott Group – Industrial Products (small steam turbines, steam turbine generators, system packaging, and auxiliary systems); Engineered Products (centrifugal and axial compressors, large steam turbines, hot gas expanders); Global Service (service centers, field service, engineered solutions, spare parts); and Ebara International Corp. (cryogenic pumps and expanders).
