Rexnord acquires Australian Zurn distributor

Milwaukee-based Rexnord today announced it has acquired the assets of LWG Specialised Plumbing Products (LWG) from Hills Holdings Limited.

“We are excited to acquire LWG after a 20-year relationship with them as a distributor in the Australian market,” said Craig Wehr, president, Zurn Industries LLC. “The acquisition allows us to further penetrate the non-residential construction market by expanding the portfolio of Zurn products sold in Australia as well as giving us access to key LWG distributed products to complement the existing Zurn offering in North America. With coverage throughout the Australian continent, the acquisition of LWG is a perfect fit for Zurn and provides a unique opportunity to continue to grow our business globally.”
