Shale-Inland acquires Major

Shale-Inland Holdings, a specialty supplier and provider of pipes and valves for energy and industrial sectors, has acquired Major Sourcing, a valve automation distributor.

Major will continue to operate under its trade name, Major Inc., and will be a part of Shale-Inland's valves and automation (V&A) platform. 

Dave Kuhn, president of Major, will continue to lead the Major business, headquartered in New Jersey and founded in 1976.  

‘With Major's geographic footprint and valve expertise, we can grow the business in power generation and leverage our collective expertise into other end markets, including petrochemical and refining in the Northeast,’ said Frank Riddick, CEO of Shale-Inland.
