Cooper buys TrueRock Holdings
By Keefe Borden30 July 2021
Cooper Machinery Services, a portfolio company of Arcline Investment Management, has bought TrueRock Holdings, a division of FlatRock Compression.
Founded in 2011 and based in Stafford, Texas, TrueRock is a provider of parts, repair, and technical support on several prominent compression brands with an emphasis on Gemini compressors. Cooper said it purchased TrueRock because of its strong engineering and technical support capabilities. Through its network of agents and distributors, TrueRock has grown from a regional player into a worldwide provider of compression parts and service.
“We are very excited to add TrueRock to our Cooper family. TrueRock’s reputation for quality, engineering and customer service is highly regarded in the compression market, and we will benefit from their best practices and passion for the industry,” said Cooper CMO Matt Forcey.
Cooper Machinery Services is the original equipment manufacturer and supplier of parts and aftersales services, and emissions reduction technologies to a large installed base of engine-compressor brands.
The company’s OEM brands include Ajax, Cooper-Bessemer, CSI, Enterprise, Gemini, Superior, TSI, and TXC. They also are a major supplier of after-sale support for non-Cooper engine-compressor brands such as Clark, Caterpillar (3600 engines), IR, Waukesha (VHP engines), and Worthington.
Manufacturing is conducted in its facilities in Houston, Texas, Salina, Kansas and McPherson, Kansas, while onsite services are delivered through its extensive network of field technicians operating out of fully equipped repair and overhaul shops strategically located around the world.
