Industrial Innovations recently announced the acquisition of Advance Products Corporation's automation division, which is known for its die-casting solutions. The new entity will do business as Advance Automation and be branded as an Industrial Innovations company. All operations are being consolidated within a single Industrial Innovations location.

"This acquisition leverages the best solutions of both companies to deliver a higher level of capability to our customers," said Industrial Innovations' president Troy Turnbull. "With this depth of product and application experience, we can be a one-stop shop for automation and lubrication solutions across the die-casting, foundry and metalworking industries."

The addition of the Advance Automation product line expands Industrial Innovations' existing lubrication management solutions footprint within both the die-casting and foundry industries. Advance has been serving the industry since 1948 and has a strong customer base using its reciprocating die sprayers, servo ladlers, robot extractors, temperature-control systems and die spray and plunger tip lubricating systems.

"As a family-owned business transitioning to the next generation, we made an informed decision to concentrate on the sales of our consumables line," said John Kraklau, Advance president. "Going forward, we believe that Industrial Innovations, with its extensive lubrication management experience, will do an excellent job of maintaining the quality of the Advance Automation brand."
