For 18 years, Combustion & Control Solutions has been committed to providing industry-leading steam and hot water solutions to customers in the Southeast. To further this commitment and push CCS into the power generation arena, CCS acquired Ostrom Boiler Services and Ace Power Solutions.
This strategic alignment of assets and resources, including new capabilities and vendor relationships, provides CCS with the ability to better serve growing industrial and institutional markets for years to come.
David Flowers, CEO of Combustion & Control Solutions, said, “Ostrom Boiler Services has served the metro Atlanta market for 54 years. Their excellent reputation and professional team give CCS an immediate and significant presence there. This improves our responsiveness to customers in the region, while providing an expanded product and service offering for Ostrom’s existing customer base.
“From our first meeting, Ace Rickard and I knew there was great synergy between our companies’ core values and market approach. This acquisition provides a platform to leverage the experience and CCS’s expertise in burner management and control systems in utility and heavy industrial spaces. APS’ product offering aligns perfectly with industry-leading solutions and cutting-edge technologies from CCS.
Ace Rickard, President of Ace Power Solutions, said, “This is an opportunity to expand the APS offering in terms of control, design and implementation – to strengthen our sales force while further diversifying our product offering. David and his team have a working knowledge of everything we do; there is an understanding at the most fundamental level.
Elaine Ostrom, Owner and CEO of Ostrom Boiler Services, said, “For 54 years, Ostrom Boiler Services has earned a reputation for caring for our employees and providing excellent service to our customers. We are delighted that this will continue with David Flowers and his team at Combustion & Controls Solutions.
