In a team comprising Partner, Andrea Wookey, Consultant, Andrew Bretherton, Lawyer, Kelly Murray and Law Graduate, Ed Kerr, Thomson Geer has advised Texas-based MOGAS Industries in its acquisition of the Brenco group of companies.

This was MOGAS' first Australian acquisition. Brenco Group (now referred to as Brenco, a division of MOGAS) is a trusted Australian provider of surface coating and engineering processes and aerospace technologies.

The purchase will extend MOGAS’ capabilities in surface technologies, while strengthening investment in the Australasian markets to serve the needs of customers in the region.

“This acquisition allows MOGAS to bring the next generation of patented laser cladding technology in-house. It also allows MOGAS to expand its advanced coating, welding, cladding and material testing technologies to serve a range of customers in the region, especially those in autoclave, mining, minerals processing, oil & gas and aerospace industries,” said Matt Mogas, President and CEO at MOGAS Industries.
“The sale of the company to MOGAS Industries is a natural fit due to Brenco’s long standing relationship with MOGAS. The two companies share a common vision, and with MOGAS’ strong marketing, engineering and financial capabilities, Brenco will be better positioned for growth,” said Quyen Tran, Director at Brenco.
