The last ten years have been a period of unprecedented growth for our company. In 2010, we added two additional facilities in Bangor and Portland, Maine to compliment our other branch facilities in Syracuse, New York and our sales offices in Rochester and Saratoga Springs, New York. In 2012, we purchased the Burns Cascade Company in Syracuse, New York and opened a new 15,000 square foot full-service distribution and actuation center to service all of upstate New York.
In 2015 we purchased Power House Supply in Newburyport, Massachusetts which affords us the opportunity to offer our complete service capabilities to the entire eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island marketplaces. In March of 2018, we moved this location from Newburyport to Haverhill, MA. in late 2019, we acquired International Valve and Instrument allowing us the ability to expand the services that we can offer to the marketplace through the significant capabilities of this great company, who over the last 37 years has built a stellar reputation in the safety valve testing and valve repair market. In 2020, we fully acquired the assets of Niagara Controls in Buffalo, NY which further enhanced our engineering capabilities and strengthened our global position in the market.
