Anvil International, a North American manufacturer and supplier of products that connect, hang and support piping systems, acquired Basic-PSA, of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

Basic-PSA manufactures and services snubbers for the power industry domestically and abroad. The service group provides on-site inspections and service at nuclear facilities throughout the country.

“Basic’s product lines are highly complementary to Anvil’s Engineered Pipe Supports (EPS) business in North Kingstown, Rhode Island,” said Tom Fish, CEO of Anvil International. “Basic’s service business brings a new offering to our portfolio of customer solutions in the power industry.”

Rick Laviolette, vice president and general manager of Anvil EPS, will assume overall responsibilities for the Basic-PSA business and will partner with its management team to expand Anvil International’s presence and offerings in the power industry. Basic-PSA will continue to operate out of its Johnstown, Pennsylvania manufacturing facility.
