“The acquisition of Ozark is another important piece of our strategic growth plan,” said Al Rheinnecker, CEO of American Piping Products. “Ozark is an excellent company with great people who serve a diverse customer base. Ozark shares our philosophy of superior customer service, deep technical knowledge and rock solid integrity. I have known many of the individuals at Ozark for a long time, and I am thrilled to add them to our outstanding team.”

“Ozark is the first of what I hope will be a number of highly targeted acquisitions,” said Matt Danis, COO and CFO of American Piping Products. “Our historic growth has been organic; however, acquisitions enable us to complement our internal growth efforts and provide our target markets with additional products, services and resources.”
