An inside look at the type of whole plant opportunities IPP provides

For nearly a half-century, International Process Plants (IPP) has empowered buyers to seize opportunities and find solutions that meet their unique needs. We don’t just buy plants. We create opportunities.

One of our recent plant acquisitions is in Grimsby, England. The Grimsby site was an API pharmaceutical manufacturing facility we acquired from Novartis.

the 7 best things about working with International Process Plants

As Ron Gale, our president says, “IPP has a unique ability to take our client’s vision for the future and help them implement it using our existing portfolio of plant sites, complete process units and equipment systems. All this offers a material competitive advantage while also participating in the circular economy.” In addition to our owned assets we will use our global network to fill your needs at no charge.
IPP has been serving our clients for 46 years, expanding from the United States to Europe, India, China and beyond. Today, we have offices in the United States, Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Pakistan, Romania, Turkey and the United Kingdom. And even if we’re not in your country, we’re nearby.
Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, IPP is here for you. For companies looking to sell idled plants, we make a typical four- to five-year process disappear. Gone is a selling process described by clients as a Byzantine maze of details and costs they never anticipated. And buyers of plants can expect to get production up and running in half the time of building new.
Again, we’re here to help sellers and buyers alike. Sellers are able to quickly sell assets to IPP – either entire plants or individual process plant items – and get cash on hand. IPP will manage each step of the process, develop sales materials and identify potential buyers. Buyers can expect to save at least 50% on the cost of proven, reliable equipment.

In response to demand for popular but scarce used equipment, we now manufacture new process equipment. As Ross Gale, Vice President of IPP Group, said, “We’re all about providing customers options they want and need, and we understand the market wants quick delivery of quality equipment at the right price.” IPP’s new product lines includes cGMP, National Board U-stamped 316L Stainless Steel and Hastelloy reactors in 2000-, 4000- and 6000-gallon capacities, as well as glass-lined reactors in all sizes. Shipping times for those items are as little as 0-12 weeks. In addition, IPP sells fully custom-built reactors, heat exchangers, centrifuges, dryers, filters, filter-dryers, mixer/granulators and more. These pieces can be fabricated and delivered in 8-28 weeks. We also can reverse the paradigm for expedited delivery since we’ve begun contracting with major fabricators to build units for our stock. Now, if a customer needs something that is not in stock or not being manufactured, we can move our customers’ orders to the front of the manufacturing line before building up our stock, saving our customers significant time.

IPP is immensely proud of our work transforming former plant sites into community centerpieces. Where these sites once were abandoned or left to fall into disrepair, IPP removes and remarkets equipment, handles all demolition and environmental remediation and prepares the sites for new life and new job opportunities. This flips the script for communities that experienced a blow to their local economies by bringing new businesses and new energy back to the area.
IPP is a solutions business. We make it easy for our clients when we purchase closed or idle manufacturing facilities. We purchase the real estate, buildings, production systems and available intellectual assets. We then repopulate those assets into their highest and best uses as manufacturing sites using the existing infrastructure. This is a win-win-win for sellers, buyers and communities, solving problems for all three groups.
