MASON, OH — Harris Products Group announced the acquisition of two manufacturers: Fabricated Tube Products (FTP) and Shoals Tubular, Inc. The two companies manufacture copper and aluminum headers, distributor assemblies, and other complex brazed assemblies in the United States and Mexico for the HVACR sector.

Harris’s parent company, Lincoln Electric, finalized the two acquisitions in July. 

“At Harris, we provide a variety of brazing alloys and gas control components for the HVACR market. Now, with the additional offerings from FTP and Shoals, we can go to market with a full suite offering to provide a more full picture for our customers,” said Kim Elliott, vice president of strategy and technology. “That's really where the benefit will be — there's a high degree of customer overlap between our legacy Harris business and both of these businesses.” 

“We now have a good footprint with facilities in Tennessee and Alabama in the U.S., as well as a plant in Monterrey, Mexico, so we can be very close to our customers,” Smith said. “That proximity means we are now able to better meet customer needs.”
