HAMILTON, OH, USA (7th January 2016) – OPW, a Dover Company (NYSE: DOV) and a global leader in fluid-handling solutions, announced today that Dover Corporation has completed the acquisition of Tokheim Group S.A.S.’s dispenser and systems businesses and they are now part of OPW.
Tokheim is a leading manufacturer of fuel dispensers, retail automation systems and payment solutions. With a presence in Europe, Middle East, Africa, South America and Asia-Pacific, Tokheim is one of the most recognised brands in the retail fueling industry.
“Both Tokheim and OPW have been leaders in the retail fueling industry for more than a century,” said David Crouse, OPW President. “By integrating Tokheim’s advanced line of dispensers and automation systems, the combined business will be able to offer our customers an unparalleled end-to-end fueling solution.
Tokheim is the fifth major acquisition for OPW in the past two-and-a-half years, and matches previous acquisitions (Fibrelite, KPS, Jump, Liquip) of category-leading brands outside the North American market.
“OPW’s goal is to bring the very best solutions to our customers in all regions of the world,” said Keith Moye, OPW VP of Global Marketing. “Our combined product portfolio now comprises the industry’s broadest product offering, enabling us to bring a more complete solution to our customers.”
Bill Arundel, Tokheim Group Sales & Marketing Director, said: “Tokheim is excited about the acquisition by Dover Corporation, and the opportunities the partnership will bring to our customers and the industry. Our main aim has always been to deliver innovative and high quality products and solutions and we look forward to continuously providing our customers with the best offering and experience available in the worldwide retail petroleum market.”
OPW’s deployment of this unique end-to-end solution strategy encourages customers to select and customise a fueling system from OPW’s full line of underground storage tank equipment, piping and containment systems, and above ground products – including the newly acquired line of Tokheim dispensers and automation systems – fulfilling almost every equipment need for a fueling station, while utilising just one supplier.
