Integrated Global Services Opens New Global Headquaters, Hires Brian Simer as VP – Corp Dev, Achieves Record 2013 Results
RICHMOND, Va., January 10, 2014 –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Integrated Global Services (IGS) is pleased to announce the opening of its new global headquarters at 7600 Whitepine Road in Richmond, Virginia. IGS will formally celebrate the opening of the new facility in a ribbon-cutting ceremony later this month. The facility more than doubles the capacity of the company’s previous location in Midlothian, Virginia, where IGS was headquartered since 2003. “Our new engineering, sales, maintenance, and production facility on Whitepine signifies our tremendous growth, and augments our ability to address the highly complex, metal wastage environments plaguing our customer base” said Rich Crawford, President of IGS. Crawford indicated that IGS has more than doubled in revenue and headcount since 2009, and has added numerous marquis energy company accounts who recognize IGS as the global leader in on-site cladding for critical process equipment. “Customers trust their mission critical equipment to IGS because they understand they need a partner that understands equipment wastage problems at the metallurgical level. We are not simply an applicator – we’re a engineered solutions provider,” added Crawford.
Additionally, IGS formally announces the hiring of Brian Simer, who joined the IGS leadership team as Vice President – Corporate Development in August. Simer is leading many of IGS’s global growth strategies in emerging markets, as well as key acquisition and integration activities. Crawford said, “While IGS’s growth to date has been organic, moving forward, strategic acquisitions will contribute to the company’s growth profile.” Simer joins IGS from AZZ Incorporated (NYSE:AZZ), where he served as the Director of New Venture Integration within their Electrical & Industrial segment. Previously, Brian was the CFO of Aquilex Arabia, Ltd. and Director of Value Creation for Aquilex Holdings, LLC. “We are delighted to have Brian join our management team,” said Crawford. “He is a versatile leader with an excellent track record of creating and unlocking value through implementing and executing complex, globally competitive strategies.”
The opening of IGS’s new global headquarters and the appointment of Brian Simer top off the third consecutive year of record financial results for the company.
