Tencarva Acquires Division of emoryWilson


Tencarva Machinery Company, headquartered in Greensboro, N.C., announced the acquisition of the Municipal Division of emoryWilson Company, effective May 1, 2006, according to Rod Lee, Tencarva president.

“This union joins Tencarva, the leading industrial pump distribution company, and the leading municipal pump distribution company in the southeast into one operation,” emphasizes Lee.

John C. Wilson, president of emoryWilson company (formerly Emory L. Wilson and Assoc. Inc.), has joined Tencarva as vice president for the new Tencarva Municipal Division. This division now includes Tencarva’s current municipal group in Arkansas and Tennessee, as well as the territory of the former emoryWilson Municipal Division, which covers North Carolina, South Carolina, most of Virginia and a few counties in northeastern Tennessee.

Municipal Division employees from emoryWilson joining the Tencarva Municipal Division are Jim Miller, sales manager; Barry Harms, Todd Ritchie, Tom Thomas and Tim Tilley, outside sales; and Tom Hegarty and John Monroe, both on the inside sales team.

The late Emory L. Wilson II, father of John C. Wilson, founded Emory L. Wilson and Assoc. Inc. in 1969. The Engineered Systems Showroom at Gorman-Rupp in Mansfield, Ohio, is named in honor of founder Emory L. Wilson II., who was a champion of the Gorman-Rupp municipal packaged lift station.

“The firm had been Gorman-Rupp’s largest volume municipal distributor for decades,” Lee points out. “In addition, a growing part of the municipal business is small wastewater pump packages for individual homes or small subdivisions where pressurized pipelines must be used because gravity lines are not feasible or are too expensive. Environment One (E One), the leading manufacturer of this type of equipment, has been represented in the Carolinas by emoryWilson Company.”

Lee continues, “Since Tencarva has facilities in various locations throughout the southeast, we see an excellent opportunity for growth by being able to make these pump packages readily available on short notice for plumbing contractors. Our service capabilities will also enhance the municipal offerings in this area.”

Tencarva is a distributor specializing in liquid process, compressed air, vacuum equipment and custom-designed systems for the industrial and municipal marketplace. Tencarva is dedicated to providing the highest quality process machinery, coupled with superior customer service and integrity.

Founded in 1978, Tencarva Machinery is committed to providing superior service by supplying innovative engineering assistance, professional equipment selection, competitive deliveries and parts availability, and preventive maintenance and repair services to all its customers. Tencarva has 23 branches in eight states, including Arkansas, Florida, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
