INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana. January 26, 2022 – Process Controls Corporation (PCC), serving the states of Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Michigan, and West Virginia has acquired Automatic Controls Company (ACC), a process industry expert and manufacturers’ representative for more than 35 years.

Effective January 1, 2022, the acquisition was finalized at PCC’s headquarters located in Indianapolis. The move to acquire ACC first started more than a year ago, when both companies started to realize the potential benefits.

Additionally, both PCC and ACC enter new markets while diversifying their product and service offerings, increasing profits, and providing greater value to their customers and communities at large.

Jeff Merman, former President of ACC shares, "We are thrilled to be a part of PCC. Our companies have similar core values, an incomparable dedication to our customers, and a superior level of expertise to provide the best industry solutions available."
