Tom Ferguson, CEO of AZZ, said: “We are pleased to have reached an agreement where Westinghouse, a leader in the nuclear industry, has acquired these assets, which will seamlessly integrate into their existing operations and will enable us at AZZ to drive growth as we increasingly focus on our core businesses. I am convinced that Westinghouse will be a great partner to the NLI customer roster, as well as a good employer for NLI’s employees.”
