Titan, manufacturer of professional-grade sprayers and application equipment, announced the acquisition of Advanced Striping Equipment, Inc. (ASE). Based in Douglasville, Georgia, ASE manufactures specialized road marking equipment including thermoplastic walk-behind machines, intermediate stripers, and truck-mounted units. With more than 30 years of experience, the team at ASE has developed some of the industry’s most advanced thermoplastic marking equipment, including ThermoMark II Double Drop hand liner, which won the American Traffic Safety Services Association Innovation Award in 2007. ASE serves domestic U.S. and international markets.
“ASE’s thermoplastic equipment is a natural extension to Titan’s line of pavement marking systems and will help accelerate our growth on a global basis,” said Greg McGuirk, senior vice president of sales for Titan. “By combining ASE’s technology and its leadership team’s industry expertise with Titan’s sales, service and marketing resources, we will provide even stronger solutions to the industry.”
There will be little noticeable change for ASE customers, as the ASE team and operations will remain intact and continue to operate in Douglasville. Going forward, Titan plans to support and develop ASE’s current product line, as well as introduce new products and technologies that will expand both ASE and Titan brand offerings in the pavement marking industry.
“We are truly honored to join forces and become part of the Titan family,” said Tom Waxler, president of ASE, Inc. “ASE and Titan share similar values, always focused intently on developing innovative products and providing industry leading customer service. We’d like to welcome all our customers to Titan, and to share in this great endeavor.”
