DEERFIELD, ILL. — PremiStar, a provider of commercial and industrial HVAC, plumbing and building automation services, has acquired Professional Pipe, LLC, a process piping company that provides installation services. The acquisition is expected to expand PremiStar’s portfolio, as well as its customer relationships.

Professional Pipe was founded in 1972 in Peachland, NC. The company began as a piping contractor for the textile industry and has since expanded its services into food and beverage, meat, pet food, manufacturing, power and energy, chemical and other industries.

“We are extremely proud to have been selected to join the PremiStar family of companies,” said John Tyson, president of Professional Pipe. “Our highly specialized services and expertise, combined with our ability to provide installation services coast-to-coast in partnership with other PremiStar companies make this a perfect fit.”

According to PremiStar, the acquisition will expand its portfolio of services to include industrial process piping systems, industrial pipe insulation and millwright work. Professional Pipe is the 21st acquisition for PremiStar since 2019.

“As PremiStar expands its service territories and customer base nationwide, the Professional Pipe team will help us expand our portfolio of service offerings and develop even deeper relationships with current and new customers,” said Joe Kirmser, chief executive officer of PremiStar. “John and his team embrace the same values of putting people first and high-integrity service that have made PremiStar an industry leader.”
