For Immediate Release
TROY, DECEMBER 09, 2022 – Gallagher-Kaiser Corporation (GK) has purchased Commerce Controls Incorporated (CCI), the Novi-based leader in providing turnkey solutions for controls systems in automotive, water, wastewater, and many other industrial applications throughout North America.
GK and CCI have worked closely together for many decades. From complete turnkey paint shop projects to a Kais-AIR Desiccant Dehumidification Unit (DHU), Commerce Controls has consistently been GK’s partner of choice for controls.
“We have steadily and strategically grown the GK enterprise in an effort to control our own destiny,” said GK president and COO, Tracy Roberts. “Similar to our previous acquisitions and startup ventures, we wanted to not only minimize the risk associated with an essential piece within our projects, but to diversify into other markets. Going forward, we can now provide the controls for mission critical customers such as battery & chip manufacturers, data center providers and more.”
Like Gallagher-Kaiser, Commerce Controls has remained a privately owned business since inception.
“I’m excited to add the talented team at CCI to our growing GK family. Their expertise fits seamlessly within our organization; from GK to UPI to Kais-AIR to Tann Corporation, their skillset is an essential piece to both our products and projects,” said GK owner and CEO, Bob Kaiser. “They are the best at what they do, and with this purchase, we will bolster their existing success with the power of the Gallagher-Kaiser enterprise behind them.”
