Earlier this month, BrandSafway (Kennesaw, Georgia, USA) acquired JA Electronics Manufacturing Company (Stafford, Texas, USA), a privately owned business that specializes in providing cathodic protection equipment to the corrosion control industry.

“By bringing JA Electronics Manufacturing products and solutions to MATCOR and BrandSafway, we will be able to more effectively grow our cathodic protection and corrosion control business,” says Dave Witsken, president of Industrial, Energy and Commercial for BrandSafway. “We’re also excited that JA Electronics’ solar-powered rectifiers will enhance BrandSafway’s ongoing ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) efforts.”

MATCOR by BrandSafway delivers cathodic protection and corrosion control solutions for major worldwide infrastructure assets, including oil, gas, and water pipelines, above-ground storage tanks, power plants, energy facilities, deep wells, and steel-in-concrete structures. JA Electronics’ industry-leading corrosion protection rectifiers, controllers, boxes, anodes, testing equipment, and additional grounded materials are an ideal complement to MATCOR’s business. Customers of both brands will benefit from a broader range of solutions and greater depth of expertise in cathodic protection and corrosion control.

“This is a great opportunity for JA Electronics and our employees,” says Jesse R. Marion, JA Electronics president and CEO. “JA Electronics has an experienced team with a great depth of knowledge in manufacturing cathodic protection and corrosion control equipment, which will complement the expertise that BrandSafway has in access, scaffolding, forming, shoring, and related industrial services.”
