T&S Acquires Italian Firm

Jul 05, 2018 01:34PM ● By Kathleen Maris

T&S Brass and Bronze Works, a global manufacturer of innovative foodservice and commercial plumbing products, has acquired Italian manufacturer Klarco SRL, creating a union of two of the oldest and strongest family-owned plumbing manufacturers in the industry.

Klarco is a European manufacturer and innovator of faucets, pre-rinse units and hose reels for the foodservice industry.

“This partnership is a progressive step for both Klarco and T&S and one that will enhance our ability to provide superior products and service to our customers around the world,” said Claude Theisen, T&S president and CEO.

“As family-owned businesses with decades' worth of history, T&S and Klarco share many of the same core values—a commitment to quality, a focus on innovation, dedication to customer support—and we are excited to build on the foundation of excellence that Klarco has laid.”

The acquisition will not result in personnel changes, staff reductions, or relocation of Klarco operations. Klarco will continue to operate independently from its headquarters in San Quirino in northern Italy. T&S will remain headquartered in South Carolina.
