Dover has entered into an agreement to acquire the Belanger business, a leading full-line car wash equipment manufacturer. Following the close of the transaction, Belanger will become part of the OPW business unit, a global leader in fluid handling solutions, in Dover’s Fluids segment.

Headquartered in Northville, Michigan, and employing more than 150 people in the U.S., Belanger has served the car wash industry for nearly 50 years. Belanger generated approximately $55 million in sales in 2018.

“With the increasing popularity of commercial car washes, the vehicle wash solutions market is an attractive space where we intend to grow OPW,” said Richard J. Tobin, Dover’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

The addition of Belanger strengthens OPW’s position as one of the largest car wash equipment and systems suppliers with brands in both conveyor tunnel and in-bay automatic segments, as well as large vehicle wash solutions.

“When combined with our PDQ business, one of our OPW brands, we will be able to offer customers a full breadth of products in this attractive market,” added J. Tobin.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
