A&B Valve and Piping Systems sold to Houston entrepreneurs

The US-based A&B Valve and Piping Systems has been acquired by a pair of Houston entrepreneurs.

Don Poarch and Joe Swinbank, co-founders of the Sprint Companies, bought Louisiana-headquartered A&B at an undisclosed price.

A&B supplies pipe, valves, and fittings to the energy, petrochemical, power and industrial sector.

Plans are to continue operations as normal and A&B will not change its name.

A&B was founded in 1972 in Broussard, Louisiana, and has one location in Houma and four others in Texas.
