Blastrac Global is announcing that it has acquired Nilfisk Cyclone Technology (formerly known as Nilfisk-Advance Technologies) from the Nilfisk Group, effective 1 October 2016. The acquired entity will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Blastrac Global and will be known as Cyclone Technology LLC.

Cyclone Technology is a manufacturer of surface preparation and cleaning equipment using ultra high-pressure and low-pressure water, based on proprietary and patented technologies. The company is located in Tempe, Arizona, US, where it designs, manufacturers, and distributes its product line and associated parts. All sales and marketing activities are coordinated through the sales, product and marketing team in Tempe. Cyclone has an active customer base in North America, South America, the Middle East, Australia and Asia.

Cyclone Technology will operate as a separate entity within the Blastrac Global Group, but the group plans to use its sales and distribution centres around the world to assist in sales and service activities to enhance the experience of Cyclone customers and provide a differentiated offering compared to Cyclone competitors. Bill Bamford will continue to serve as vice-president / general manager of Cyclone Technology LLC. All employees of the Cyclone Team will remain with the company when the acquisition is complete.

The addition of ultra high-pressure and low-pressure surface preparation / cleaning equipment to the Blastrac Product offering will enhance the company’s position as a solution provider for surface preparation projects using a ‘toolbox’ approach. The proprietary nature of the Cyclone offering along with its high productivity and performance reputation is a natural fit with other Blastrac Products which have always enjoyed the industry’s highest reputation for quality and performance.
