Gilbarco Veeder-Root Acquires Midco Ltd.

The acquisition extends Gilbarco’s footprint in India.

Gilbarco Veeder-Root (GVR) has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Midco Ltd., subject to customary conditions to closing. Headquartered in Mumbai, Midco designs and manufactures fuel dispensers and related fueling station equipment.

According to GVR, Midco has a demonstrated track record of fit-for-purpose engineering products and quality service across India. Midco will integrate with GVR’s India operations, led by the current Vivek Bhide, GVR managing director for India.

GVR says this acquisition signals Gilbarco’s commitment to expanding its footprint in this key market. “India is a very important market for us as it continues to grow, deregulate and adopt technology to improve efficiency and protect the environment,” said Aaron Saak, president of Gilbarco Inc. “Over time we plan to increase the full breadth of the GVR product portfolio and integrated automated solutions to the market in India. This large installed base of equipment, combined with the remote monitoring and software capabilities, through the recent acquisition of Orpak, puts us in a good position to drive network visibility, digitization and operational efficiency across the fueling sector. We are excited to make this additional investment locally to continue to drive improvements in the way we meet our customers’ expectations.”

Midco will become part of GVR’s India operations post-closing. Closing is expected to require approximately three months due to statutory requirements.
