Insulectro Acquires Beck’s Light Gauge Aluminum Assets


Reading time ( words)

Insulectro has acquired the assets of Beck’s Light Gauge Aluminum Co in Elk Grove, Illinois. Prior to the acquisition, Beck’s was a leading provider of solid aluminum sheets used in the manufacture of printed circuit boards. Beck’s aluminum is American-sourced.

“The addition of Beck’s Light Gauge Aluminum is an important acquisition,” Insulectro President and CEO Patrick Redfern commented. “It provides our customers with a steady, reliable source of aluminum for the foreseeable future. Beck’s unique capability to degrease, tool, and sheet in-line will allow us to source more American aluminum mills that don’t degrease today.” 

The Beck’s operation will be consolidated into Insulectro’s Bloomingdale, Illinois, manufacturing facility and led by Greg Beck and his veteran team. The product line will continue to be supported by Beck’s existing channel partners.
