Godfrey & Wing Expands with Acquisition

Godfrey & Wing Inc., the global leader in vacuum impregnation technology, has acquired IMPCO, Inc., a Rhode Island-based organization. This strategic move expands Godfrey & Wing’s technical capabilities and production capacity for its clients around the world.


“We are excited to offer current and future customers the vast vacuum impregnation experience and technology that comes with the joining of these two companies,” said Chris Gilmore, president and CEO of Godfrey & Wing. “We will continue to be at the forefront of vacuum impregnation technology, delivering more sealed parts at the lowest price, resulting in the best financial outcome for our customers.”


For more than 65 years, Godfrey & Wing’s technological breakthroughs, such as the introduction of Continuous Flow Impregnation and HVLV systems, have made it the global leader in vacuum impregnation science and technology. Godfrey & Wing also maintains a network of company-owned and independent Authorized Service Centers that complete vacuum impregnation processing on millions of components annually for customers worldwide.


IMPCO is an industry leader with more than 60 years of experience in vacuum impregnation technology. Like Godfrey & Wing, IMPCO provides the equipment, sealant and service required to establish or supply in-house impregnation operations. IMPCO’s fully equipped job shop is available to fill specialized impregnation, vacuum vapor degreasing and pressure-testing needs.


“With combined vacuum impregnation expertise of more than 120 years, this merger is a significant step forward in vacuum impregnation, increasing the reach, level of service and technical capabilities that can be offered to customers around the world,” said Peter T. Gebhard, former president & CEO of IMPCO, Inc.
