A-Gas, Bowling Green, Ohio, has acquired Diversified Pure Chem (DPC) LLC, Rhome, Texas.

DPC, a reclaimer and supplier of refrigerant gases, operates 13 refrigerant collection and distribution hubs nationwide and has a 40,000 sq. ft. separation and blending facility in Texas. DPC offers a full line of refrigerants including HCFC and HFC replacements.

Monte Roach, president and CEO of A-Gas Americas, said, “DPC brings us best-in-class separation and blending capabilities along with a complementary go-to-market approach and customer access. DPC brings a highly-experienced staff of 45 people that expand our industry knowledge and services. Our combined customers across the country will experience a significantly increased Total Solutions® approach to their supply and reclamation needs. With the acquisition of Rapid Recovery in 2016 and the addition of DPC, A-Gas will become a clear leader in refrigerant recovery, reclaim, and separation in the United States. This is one more important step in creating an organization that delivers global expertise on a local scale.”

The acquisition marks the fifth in the U.S. and the eighth worldwide since 2012 for A-Gas Group International, A-Gas’ U.K.-based parent company.

A-Gas said the DPC business will be integrated into A-Gas over the next several months. During that time, Bruce Ernst, vice president of business development, will serve as acting vice president and general manager of DPC.
