Keith West (left, facing camera) and Ross Gale (blue shirt, writing notes) were among the team members representing International Process Plants recently at the Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates trade show in Nashville.

International Process Plants, the Princeton Junction company that specializes in buying and selling process plants and systems, has announced it will begin selling new alloy process equipment, including reactors, heat exchangers, tanks, filters, dryers, mixers and centrifuges. IPP recently unveiled Gale Process Solutions, a subsidiary that officials believe will transform the industries it serves through rapid delivery of new process equipment across a variety of technologies and applications. IPP previously had specialized exclusively in used plants, systems and equipment.

The company primarily serves the chemical, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, fertilizer and power generation industries.

Keith West, global director of equipment sales at IPP Group, said the introduction of GPS marks a significant milestone for IPP.

“It signifies our commitment to innovation and differentiation from other equipment suppliers in the market,” he said. “We can deliver quality new process equipment — both custom and standard designs — in world-leading timeframes.”

Ross Gale, vice president of IPP Group, said the company’s dedication to meeting customer demand for timely delivery without compromising quality was a key driving the decision. The strategy, he added, is tied to an uptick in demand for hard-to-find used process equipment, an area IPP has specialized in for nearly a half-century.

“Our focus is on providing customers with the equipment they need when they need it,” Gale said. “The launch of GPS allows us to expand our offerings beyond the quality secondhand equipment we are known for, and better serve our customers’ evolving needs with the same level of service that sets us apart in the marketplace.”

IPP’s strategic expansion into new equipment supply comes at a time when the industry is experiencing increasing pressure to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Gale highlighted GPS’ ability to offer both standard and custom-built solutions, with lead times ranging from zero to 28 weeks.

“In today’s manufacturing landscape, agility and efficiency are paramount,” Gale said. “With GPS, we are well-positioned to meet the demands of our customers and provide them with the solutions they need to succeed.

“At the same time, we’ll continue to do what we’ve done from Day 1, and that’s help more than 160,000 customers around the world sell faster and buy smarter with secondhand facilities, equipment and systems while offering this line of new products to our existing customers and new projects.”

In addition to its world headquarters in Mercer County, IPP has offices in 13 countries. Inventory, Gale said, is shipped from warehouses in South Carolina, Germany and the U.K.

IPP’s current portfolio includes more than 110 complete process plants, 17 complete plant sites and over 15,000 equipment systems and major pieces of high-quality, ready-to-ship used process equipment, according to Gale.
