A Brite Company, a Garland, Texas-based supplier of equipment, services and chemicals to the metal finishing industry, has made public their acquisition of Sunbelt Systems, an Irving, Texas-based company specializing in process equipment, chemistry, and controls for the plating industry. The acquisition was completed on September 17, 2012.

“We’re proud to announce the acquisition of one of the most respected suppliers of equipment in the metal finishing industry,” said Harry Hassell, national sales manager for A Brite Company. “Sunbelt Systems has a tremendous reputation and reaches into all of Texas as well as much of the Southwest. We’re pleased to have them join us.”

Paul McGovern, founder and president of the nearly 30-year-old Sunbelt Systems, echoed those sentiments. “We are looking forward to adding our equipment expertise to the already successful product lines manufactured and represented by A Brite Company,” he said. “We are striving to make the transition seamless for our customers and staff as they take their place within A Brite.”

The new A Brite Equipment Group will be headed up by James Greer, currently A Brite’s purchasing and equipment manager. Greer will head up a team of former Sunbelt employees and be supported by the A Brite sales team. Paul McGovern, Roy Harcourt, Lisa Montez and Martin Alanis will round out the team.

“We are very pleased to have the Sunbelt team and their customers join us here at A Brite,” said Frank Dunigan, A Brite’s president and CEO. The inclusion of Sunbelt, he noted, demonstrates A Brite’s commitment to providing excellent customer service to a broader client base.
