ROSS Controls announced that it acquired the assets of the Detroit Coil Co., known in the marketplace as DECCO, on December 30, 2011. The history of the two companies has been intertwined, as DECCO has supplied components to ROSS for many decades.
ROSS, headquartered in Troy, Mich., designs and manufactures precision pneumatic valves, control systems and related products. Since 1921, ROSS has offered these products to the general fluid power industry and industries as diverse as metal forming, aluminum, glass container, steel and safety.
DECCO, with a history dating to 1912, manufactures coils and solenoids for a broad range of industry-specific applications. DECCO maintains offices in Ferndale, Mich. and operates a coil winding facility in Frankfort, Mich. and a screw machining facility in Benzonia, Mich.
Growth and opportunity lie ahead. DECCO expands ROSS’ product portfolio and provides additional avenues for expansion into electronics. For DECCO, the ROSS group provides access to new and untapped global markets.
Over the next several months, teams will be working to optimize the collective strengths of the two companies.
