To leverage their collective strength and heritage, Cook Compression, Inpro/Seal, Waukesha Bearings and Bearings Plus have formed the newly named Dover Precision Components operating company. As the umbrella for these key brands, Dover Precision Components is an integrated provider of performance-critical solutions for rotating and reciprocating machinery and features a diverse portfolio of products and services.
Here is a closer look at the brands that form Dover Precision Components: Cook Compression delivers custom-engineered valves, sealing technologies, pistons and rods, as well as expert repair and reconditioning services and advanced technical support, for reciprocating compressors. Inpro/Seal, the inventor of the Bearing Isolator, designs and manufactures bearing protection and shaft seals to increase the reliability of rotating equipment. Waukesha Bearings is a global leader in engineered hydrodynamic fluid film bearings and brush seals for high-performing turbomachinery and, under the Waukesha Magnetic Bearings brand, produces the most robust active magnetic bearing systems available. Bearings Plus specializes in the repair, replacement and upgrade of fluid film bearings and seals to get turbomachinery back up and running, better than before.
The brands were originally brought together in November 2015 to broaden product offerings, expand global resources and apply operational efficiencies to better serve customers in the energy and industrial markets. Since then, synergies between the brands have extended engineering and materials expertise, opened new avenues for innovation, promoted best practices in manufacturing, and advanced quality and continuous improvement efforts.
“The introduction of the Dover Precision Components name supports our strategic partnerships with OEMs and end users and will improve the visibility of our broad capabilities to improve performance of rotating and reciprocating assets,” commented Dover Precision Components President Marcell Ulrichs. “The name will also provide a common identity for our customers and employees across the globe.”
Headquartered in Houston, Dover Precision Components maintains facilities in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. It has more than 1,400 employees worldwide.
“We take great pride in the legacies of our brands,” said Ulrichs, “and we aim to further strengthen those brands under the umbrella of Dover Precision Components.”
