“Masco, and in particular Stilmas, will leverage some of the products in MarCor portfolio and expand their exposure and their market globally,” Alberto Borella, CEO, Masco Group told this publication. “Both companies already have state-of-the-art technologies that will be merged benefiting from each other’s experience and technical expertise.”

MarCor’s addition includes WFI stills, vapour compressors, pure steam generation systems and turnkey capabilities which will be incorporated into Stilmas Americas’ portfolio.

And looking forward, the firm intends to invest in people, capital equipment and manufacturing space in efforts to drive sales.
