United Process Controls (UPC), a leading global provider of process controls, flow controls and automation solutions, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Atmosphere Engineering Company (Atmosphere Engineering), a USA-based, family-owned and operated business led by brothers Jason and Eric Jossart. Founded in 2002, Atmosphere Engineering designs and manufactures industrial flow control products, furnace control products, and data acquisition software with a strong presence in North America, South America, and Europe.
Atmosphere Engineering will bolster UPC’s product offering and technical competencies, adding brands like the FurnaceMeter™ and VersaMeter™ flow meters, the Endoinjector™, Exoinjector™, and EndoFlex™ gas generators, and the dissociated ammonia generator DAGen™. While the acquisition expands the company’s customer base, it will also provide a platform to expand into new markets, extend market penetration in the flow controls market, and capitalize on cross-sell opportunities.
Additionally, UPC has enhanced its organizational structure to align with the future direction of the company and its foundation for continued growth. As part of the new structure, Jason Jossart will serve as the company’s vice president of operations and report directly to UPC’s president, Paul Oleszkiewicz. Eric Jossart will join as director of sales, heat treat and report directly to Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Patrick Torok.
“Atmosphere Engineering represents a great fit with our flow and process controls business and is in line with UPC’s strategic direction to expand its repertoire of products and leadership in the industry,” said UPC President Paul Oleszkiewicz. “Jason and Eric run an incredible business, and we are excited to welcome them and the entire Atmosphere Engineering team to the UPC family. This acquisition shows our ongoing commitment to provide customers worldwide with a comprehensive portfolio of process and flow control solutions that optimize the quality, safety, and control of heat treating operations.”
“We at Atmosphere Engineering are very pleased to join forces with UPC. My brother, Eric, and I have worked hard to build Atmosphere Engineering’s brand and reputation and are excited to see it grow further as part of UPC,” said Jason Jossart, founder and president of Atmosphere Engineering. “Together we will emerge as a leader in flow and process controls to the heat treat industry and address new market challenges and opportunities for technical innovation and growth.”
