OEMS and Consultants Purchase or Influence Nearly Half Of All Flow Control and Treatment Products and Services

In 2015 Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) companies, consultants and architect engineers will purchase or influence the purchase of air, gas, water and liquid flow control and treatment products and services valued at $147 billion.   This represents nearly half all the purchases of these products.

Twenty thousand companies will average over $7 million in purchases and decisive influence.  They include some of the largest EPCs who purchase $ billions to small OEMS with purchases of less than $1 million.

Identifying these companies, their products and their locations is a challenge made increasingly difficult by the continuing acquisitions and divestitures. In order to track this activity on an organized basis, McIlvaine has created a corporate identification number. All subsidiaries can then be immediately displayed with their products, services and locations. Product Analysis by Financial Entity

One active acquirer is CECO. Here is an example of how one finds the contacts for a location. (Alternatively you can start with products or locations.)

First you identify the parent:

You then see the list of subsidiaries: 

(More than 20 other subsidiaries are listed including those in the Netherlands and China. The acquisition of Peerless is not yet complete, so none of these locations is listed.)

The sales manager will want to analyze the potential for all the subsidiaries and can do so as follows.

CECO is a significant OEM purchaser of valves.  One group also makes valves but only fiberglass, so they cannot supply their needs internally.  Duall, Fisher, Klosterman, Bush Zhongli and HEE are all potential valve purchasers for scrubber systems.  When you click on Duall, you see the products and the contacts:

  • Air Handling - FANS
  • Fabric Filter - SPRAY DRYER
  • Sedimentation - ODOR
  • Wet Scrubber - ADSORPTION
  • Wet Scrubber - AIR TOXICS
  • Wet Scrubber - ODOR CONTROL
  • Wet Scrubber - PACKED TOWERS

xxxxxxxxxx Purchasing Mgr.xxxxxxx. xxxxxxx xxxxxxxx xx xxxxx
xxxxxxx Design Chemical Engineer xxxxx xxxxxxxxx xx xxxx

Individual sales people will use the system in various ways. One is by location.  Here is an example by zip code:

The corporate identification approach is particularly valuable in pursuing opportunities in China.  The multiple ways subsidiaries are listed and spelled makes it very confusing.  So McIlvaine provides the corporate identification link for the Chinese subsidiaries in both English and Chinese.
