Bimba Manufacturing, an Illinois-based pneumatic, hydraulic, and electric solutions provider, has purchased Acro Associates, a California-based pneumatic and solenoid pinch valves, and occlusion devices maker for flexible tubing paths and control boards, for an undisclosed amount.

Acro Associates’ products and contract manufacturing services are used worldwide by the medical device as well as bioprocessing industries for over 30 years.

Bimba president Pat Ormsby said that this acquisition reflects Bimba’s dedication to customer satisfaction.

"Adding Acro’s pinch valves and controls capabilities increases our strategic value in our key industries and reflects our long-term commitment to growth," Ormsby added.

Acro will, however, continue its operations in its current location.
