Colfax Corporation, a global leader in fluid-handling solutions for critical applications, today announced the acquisition of COT-PURITECH, headquartered in Canton, Ohio. COT-PURITECH's 80 associates will be integrated into the Colfax Fluid-Handling business.

A national supplier of oil flushing and remediation services to power generation plants, refinery and petrochemical operators and other industrial manufacturing sites, COT-PURITECH expands Colfax's Total Lubrication Management services offering, particularly for the global oil and gas market.  In 2010, the company realized approximately $20 million in revenues.

We intend to expand these services through our global oil & gas and power generation channels."
