Worthington Industries buys JRE

Worthington Industries acquired the business of James Russell Engineering Works.

JRE manufactures aluminum and stainless steel cryogenic transport trailers used for hauling liquid oxygen, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen and liquefied natural gas (LNG) for top producers and distributors of industrial gases and LNG.

“JRE is recognized as making some of the highest quality trailers in North America. Their capabilities nicely complement the Aritas cryogenic business we recently purchased in Europe,” said Andrew Billman, president of the Worthington Industries pressure cylinders business.

“With the addition of JRE’s transport trailers, we now are able to support our customers’ storage and transport needs in every component of the LNG and industrial gas ‘mobile pipeline,’ from the oilfield to onsite storage and regasification,” he added.
