Hayward Tyler has acquired US-based Energy Steel & Supply Co, a manufacturer of machined products and components for the civil nuclear power industry.

Lapeer, Michigan-based Energy Steel has been serving the nuclear power industry since 1986. The company offers equipment fabrication, material supply, precision machining, engineering and repair services. It also provides solutions for obsolete nuclear components and support for complex projects through strategic OEM partnerships.

Under Hayward Tyler, Energy Steel will keep its location in Lapeer and its brand identity.

Hayward Tyler, which is a division of Avingtrans plc, has more than 40 years of experience in the nuclear power market, with over 600 pumps in active service in nuclear applications across the world.

“Our acquisition of Energy Steel presents a significant opportunity to broaden our offerings to the global nuclear market,” said Mike Turmelle, managing director of Avingtrans’ Engineered Pumps and Motors Division. “Our customers will be even better served with the capabilities that Energy Steel brings, particularly in precision manufacturing and solutions for obsolete OEM components.”

“This investment is part of our wider effort to cultivate our engineered pumps and motors division,” said Steve McQuillan, CEO of Avingtrans. “The capacity and geographic presence of Energy Steel provides an important strategic opportunity for Hayward Tyler.”
