Acquisition Expands the Clark-Reliance Portfolio of Process-Measurement Equipment

August 9, 2023

Clark-Reliance, Strongsville, OH, has acquired John C. Ernst & Co., Inc., Sparta, NJ, a manufacturer of engineered measurement solutions and process-observation equipment—sight flow indicators, liquid level gauges and flow meter products—for liquid and steam applications. 

“John C. Ernst expands our portfolio of engineered measurement and process-observation equipment products and solutions,” says Patrick Babka, president and CEO of Clark-Reliance. “Its application expertise and customer reach are highly complementary with our products and capabilities, including our Jerguson, Jacoby-Tarbox, and Ernst Flow Industries brands.”

Adds James Wolfe, president of John C. Ernst: “Clark-Reliance’s market leadership and experienced management team will greatly help John C. Ernst capitalize on its market position and further our company’s capabilities that my brothers, George, Geoff, and I have worked so hard to build.”

Clark-Reliance manufactures level instrumentation, process observation equipment, and filtration equipment to help end-users control, operate and protect their facilities in a variety of liquid and steam-management applications.

Wiley Brothers–Aintree Capital advised John C. Ernst and the Wolfe brothers during the sale process; terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
