The Elliott Group has integrated the operation of EIC Cryo, based in Sparks, Nev., with its operations in Jeannette, the company announced.

Described as an interdivisional realignment, the move will take place over the next two years and will combine operations under the Elliott Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Tokyo-based Ebara Corp., a news release said.

EIC Cryo, which stands for Ebara International Corp.'s Cryodynamics Division, will continue to operate under that name and will be operated as one of four business units within the Elliott Group.

EIC Cryo manufactures custom-engineered cryogenic pumps and expanders for the liquefied natural gas industry. Elliott supplies compressors and turbines for LNG plants.

“The integration of EIC Cryo into Elliott will improve efficiency, provide a simplified customer experience and preserve shareholder value,” said Ebara CEO Tadashi Urata.

As part of the move, Elliott also announced the appointment of John Rann as vice president of EIC Cryo. An Elliott employee since 1973, he previously was vice president of Engineered Products.

Elliott employs an estimated 1,200 people in Westmoreland County.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
