Alfa Laval Inc., a Richmond, Va.-based leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling, acquired Gamajet Cleaning Systems, Inc., a leading provider of tank cleaning machines and self-contained and portable cleaning systems for the industrial and sanitary markets in North America.

“We have built the leading position within tank cleaning equipment over the past 10 years,” says Lars Renström, president and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “Gamajet fits very well with our ambitions, and it expands our product portfolio. It will especially extend our offer to the industrial market and also strengthen our position in North America.”

Gamajet Cleaning Systems, based in Exton, Pa., will be integrated into Alfa Laval, effective Aug. 23.
