Global safety equipment maker MSA Safety is expanding its gas detection business with the $337 million acquisition of Alle-Kiski Valley-based Bacharach, the companies announced.
MSA, headquartered in Cranberry, plans to complete the acquisition of Bacharach and its affiliated companies from FFL Partners, a San Francisco-based private equity firm, in early July.
When asked how the acquisition might affect jobs at Bacharach, MSA Safety spokesman Mark Deasy said the deal was still in the early stages but added any decisions would focus on growth.
“Our focus will be on maintaining business continuity and gaining a better understanding of the Bacharach business,” Deasy said. “As we go through the integration process in the months ahead, we see excellent opportunities for growth arising from our combined organizations.”
