  • Great Plains Industries Releases New Corporate Video

    GPI gives a glimpse into its corporate culture and values

    WICHITA, Kan. – Today, Great Plains Industries (GPI), headquartered in Wichita, Kan. (USA), released a new corporate video to be used in its retail, commercial and industrial sectors in support of its three brands: GPIⓇ The Proven ChoiceⓇ , GPRO™ and FLOMEC™.

    The video was produced from the first-person perspective of its team, many of whom tell a part of GPI’s story today. That story involves a recent acquisition, the allocation of its business into three sectors, its decision to brand its products by user type within those sectors, and the innovation that is driving the company’s vision and future.

    “A company is nothing without its people,” said Vic Lukic, president and CEO of GPI. “As a family-owned company that emphasizes strong relationships with our customers to drive their success, we are proud to now have a corporate video that captures our values and story, told by the people who make it happen each day.”

  • Great Plains Industries Acquires Trimec Industries

    Great Plains Industries Acquires Trimec Industries
    Acquisition supports expanding global opportunities

    WICHITA, Kan. – Great Plains Industries, Inc. (GPI) of Wichita, Kan. has acquired privately held Trimec Industries headquartered in Sydney, Australia. The acquisition further diversifies the company’s flowmeter product lines, while strengthening its presence and potential opportunities in international markets.

    Great Plains Industries is a leading U.S. manufacturer of inline turbine meters for measuring flow of water and water‐based chemicals, as well as a leading manufacturer of fuel and chemical transfer pumps. Trimec is a leading Australian manufacturer of oval gear, positive displacement meters with markets in Asia and Europe.

    “It’s your classic synergy story with two compatible organizations creating a lot more as one,” said Victor Lukic, Great Plains Industries president and CEO. “Trimec has strong distribution that complements the company’s global distribution plan. And, we are very pleased to market Trimec’s high-quality products alongside ours.”

    “We found a great company, with great people and great products, in a location that fits perfectly with the strategic growth plan for GPI,” said Susayn Brandes, president and CEO of Great Plains Ventures, GPI’s parent company.

    The acquisition is key to the GPI’s strategic growth plan that calls for the addition of multiple metering technologies that offer an expanding range of flow measurement solutions. Plans call for both companies to maintain their current operations with no consolidation expected.

    “We’ve worked with Great Plains Industries for many years,” said Keith Daly, a Trimec director. “Given our similar cultures and product strategies, it makes perfect sense to grow together. The Company can now access our markets and we now have access to theirs. Markets that were both previously difficult to penetrate.”

    The joining of these two strong, engineering‐based companies creates a product mix that will offer customers and channel partners an expanded line to meet a wider range of metering opportunities. It also expedites research and development opportunities for the companies.

    “With the support of Great Plains Industries in essential resources and future funding security, Trimec Industries can further develop new metering technologies to meet evolving needs,” Daly said. “The acquisition fits GPI’s strategic growth plan for expediting the expansion of its international markets.”

    “Great Plains Industries has sold product globally dating back to the early days, but Trimec propels us into the international arena in a meaningful, sustainable way,” Lukic said. “The Company is pleased to gain a new footprint in Australia that is so close to important markets in that part of the world.”

    The Trimec acquisition is Lukic’s first since taking the helm at Great Plains Industries late last year.
