Acquisition Bolsters CPS' Position as a Leading Supplier of Mission-Critical Systems
Critical Process Systems Group is pleased to announce the acquisition of Nuance Systems (NSI). NSI is a leading supplier of complex, ultra-high purity gas and chemical delivery systems and sensing technologies to advanced applications within the semiconductor and solar industries. NSI designs and produces mission-critical ampoules, liquid level sensors, integrated systems, as well as provides repair services. Bill Kimmerle and Kyle Kimmerle, co-owners of NSI, will continue to serve as CEO and President of NSI, respectively.
Dmitry Shashkov, PhD, CEO of CPS, said, “I am excited to welcome NSI into CPS. NSI is a rare business that combines the speed and agility of an entrepreneurial startup with solid manufacturing processes, mature quality systems, and ardent customer support that one would expect to find in much larger organizations. NSI’s strengths are very similar and complimentary to our own. Our team is looking forward to working with NSI and helping them grow and serve their customers even better in the future.”
Bill Kimmerle, PhD, CEO of NSI, said, “This is the right step at this stage in NSI’s evolution. NSI, its customers and its employees will benefit from the extensive resources provided by CPS.” Kyle Kimmerle, President of NSI, added, “This partnership will accelerate NSI’s growth trajectory and enhance support to its customers’ ever-evolving technology needs.”
Brian Crumbaugh, Partner at Wynnchurch, said, “In line with our original investment thesis for the platform, the acquisition of NSI expands CPS’s capabilities, customer diversification, and geographic reach. We believe that the addition of NSI further bolsters CPS’s position as a leading supplier of mission-critical systems.”
Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Portland, Oregon, NSI is a leading supplier of complex, ultra-high purity gas and chemical delivery systems and sensing technologies to advanced applications within the semiconductor and solar industries.
