ESCO made several acquisitions in this decade beginning with Pacal Blades. Acquisitions like the Quality Steel Foundry added resources and products to serve the oil sands market. ESCO also added significant aerospace capabilities in Belgium and Slovakia and constructed state-of-the-art facilities in Mexico and China. These new Turbine Technologies plants benefitted customers with high quality, low cost manufacturing of select investment castings. Products like the SV2 and Whisler Plus hammerless locking system continued the ESCO tradition of product innovation, making ESCO the customer’s choice for metal components and wearparts that meet and exceed expectations with quality, value and speed.
