Anova merges with logistics provider Silicon Controls

November 20, 2019 By    

Anova and Silicon Controls, a provider of the Gaslog solution and a player in the global LPG industry, have merged.

The merger, Anova explains, is motivated by a shared approach to customer engagement, innovation and global engineering capabilities in tank telemetry, telecommunications, cloud applications and mobile platforms. Anova, the parent company of propane tank monitoring company WESROC, says the combined capabilities of the two companies position Anova to help its customer base transform logistics and redefine consumer services.

“With a reputation for taking a consultative partnership approach to logistics transformation, we have secured a strong market presence and installed base,” says Mike Neuman, CEO of Silicon Controls. “Silicon has done extensive work over many years in the propane industry, helping customers decrease the number of trucks on the road by improving delivery efficiency.”

Silicon Controls has more than 25 years of experience providing end-to-end solutions in remote telemetry, with customers in North America, Europe and Australia.

“Collectively, we are reducing winter overtime, minimizing miles per stop, improving safety and productivity, and addressing the growing decarbonization conundrum,” says Robert Battye, vice president of North America at Silicon Controls. “We’re stronger together – and that is the immediate value our customers will feel.”

Anova says the partnership will increase its presence – and the availability of industrial internet of things – in Europe, offer relevant business models to an expanding Asian and South American market, and support the rapidly growing use of technology across North America. The company adds the merger is further proof of its customer-first mentality.

“Our customers need a dependable partner that is heavily invested in developing next-generation technology solutions that will not only provide the lowest total cost of ownership, but, quite simply, make their lives easier,” says Chet Reshamwala, CEO of Anova. “The new Anova team has over 90 years of LPG and propane experience and intends to build on that, ensuring our customers have access to the best technology, equipment, partners and people to support our customers’ needs.”
