Spray Equipment & Service Center LLC, based in Wichita, Kansas, has acquired Springer Industrial of Chandler, Arizona. The transaction will strengthen Spray Equipment’s leadership position in the finishing industry and provide more solutions to the expanded customer base.

The companies have a long and successful history in the paint and powder coating industry. Their customers’ work ranges from on-site contracting to engineered finishing systems. Both companies have built trust through a consultative customer-focused approach to custom finishing solutions, and providing service with talented, experienced professionals. “This is a great fit for the growth strategy of both companies in terms of culture, geography, and product mix,” said John Shadinger, Spray Equipment’s CEO. 

Spray Equipment is a leading distributor of Graco and other top brands of liquid finishing equipment, including industrial finishing, protective coatings, sealants, and adhesives. Springer Industrial sets the industry standard in providing high-quality powder coating systems and is a leading GEMA USA distributor and service provider.

“Becoming a part of Spray Equipment will provide great opportunities for growth for our customers, as well as our employees,” said Dave Springer, Springer Industrial President who founded the company in 1986. “Joining the Spray Equipment family will enhance our distributed products, engineered systems, and service opportunities.” Dave will assist in the ownership transition and integration with Spray Equipment.

The acquisition provides Spray Equipment with an expanded presence in the southwestern United Sates and Mexico. It also rounds out the product mix and go-to-market strategy for the customers from both companies.
