Acquisition Creates Clear Global Leader in Engineered Maintenance Coatings Industry

RICHMOND, VA, 10/31/17 – Integrated Global Services, Inc. (IGS) has acquired Cetek Ltd., merging two of the world’s most experienced and technologically advanced critical asset maintenance and coating solution providers. Cetek is the market leader in the evaluation and performance optimization of critical fired heaters and boiler equipment in the global downstream oil & gas and power markets. Cetek’s key offerings include Ce-Coat high emissivity ceramic coating services performed during scheduled customer plant turnarounds, and Hot-tek high temperature maintenance services performed while the refinery is still operating to minimize costly downtime of process equipment. Cetek’s unique solutions enable customers to improve the throughput, longevity, fuel consumption and emissions of their critical process equipment, typically resulting in a rapid return on investment for customers. Cetek brings more than 40 years of experience in servicing equipment to IGS.

“The biggest winners here are our customers,” said Rich Crawford, President and CEO of IGS. “The addition of Cetek—including its full team of subject matter experts and suite of innovative technologies—will allow IGS to offer an even wider array of solutions, expertise and resources to our clients who want better performance, reliability and longevity out of their mission critical equipment.” Crawford also referenced the two companies’ complementary business models and cultures. “Cetek and IGS are incredibly similar. We are both undisputed technology leaders in our markets, and our customers depend on us for ensuring their equipment performance and reliability.”
