Chennai: Elgi Equipments Ltd has acquired US-based Patton’s Inc., the Indian company’s second global acquisition of a compressor maker in the past four months. The financial details were not disclosed.

Elgi Equipments informed BSE that its board on Wednesday had approved the acquisition of Charlotte, North Carolina-based Patton’s.

Patton’s is engaged in the distribution and service of industrial and medical compressors with a presence in south eastern US. The purchase will give Elgi access to new technologies and product lines besides a strong foothold in a market where it is not present.

In August, Elgi had bought Italy-based Rotair SpA. The company designs, manufactures and distributes compressors and allied products for construction and industrial activity.

Shares of Elgi Equipments rose 2.3% to 89 in morning trade on BSE. The benchmark Sensex gained 1.1% to 19,065.65 points.
