Unico Mechanical and Bender CCP said the acquisition broadens their field service and steam turbine repair capabilities, as well as bringing unique tooling manufacturing expertise.

AMT’s President Terry Forg explained, “Joining the Bender CCP and Unico team is a natural next step for AMT. It provides a great opportunity to bring our in-place and turbine repair expertise to larger-scale projects in the western region, and to bring Bender and Unico’s broader service set to our power generation customer base.”

“Our hydropower business has grown drastically in the last 10 years,” said Randy Potter, president and CEO of Unico Mechanical. “AMT brings the deep field expertise necessary for the complex large-scale hydropower projects we handle such as the Hoover Dam, California Water Resources and Pacific Gas & Electric. We’re excited to have the AMT team on board.”
