Schultz-Creehan Holdings, Inc. is pleased to announce its acquisition of Aeroprobe Corporation. The merger brings together two established and respected names to better serve their customers on a global basis.

Aeroprobe Corporation is an international supplier of custom aerodynamic and hydrodynamic measurement systems. Schultz-Creehan Holdings had previously been Aeroprobe's exclusive manufacturer of multi-hole probe instrumentation. This vertical merger brings design and manufacturing together while enhancing Aeroprobe's mechanical, electronic, and materials capabilities.

Both companies have combined to operate as Aeroprobe Corporation. Offices and staff have been consolidated in Schultz-Creehan Holding's current premises at 2200 Kraft Drive, Suite 1475, Blacksburg, VA 24060.

Nanci Hardwick, CEO of the merged entity, states, "Schultz-Creehan Holdings has a strong reputation for innovation and has addressed complex problems requiring a multi-disciplinary team approach for customers who are challenged by the extremes of the environment they work in. We have been able to develop novel solutions to address the conditions of extreme heat, corrosion, and pressure. For 18 years, Aeroprobe has been providing innovative custom solutions for industries like aerospace, turbomachinery, wind energy and automotive which all face extreme conditions. We share a culture of innovation and technical expertise. To honor Aeroprobe's global reputation for leading technology, we've chosen to continue operating under that name."

Aeroprobe Vice President of Business Development Matt Zeiger states, "This merger provides a synergy that will greatly benefit the market. Both companies have a tradition of commitment to the customer. We are excited to now offer expanded in-house resources, engineering, and expertise."
