United Process Controls (UPC), a global provider of process controls and automation solutions, acquired Atmosphere Engineering Company. Founded in 2002, Milwaukee-based Atmosphere Engineering designs and manufactures industrial flow control products, furnace control products and data-acquisition software. Atmosphere Engineering will bolster UPC’s product offering and technical competencies, adding brands like the FurnaceMeter and VersaMeter flow meters; the Endoinjector, Exoinjector and EndoFlex gas generators; and the DAGen dissociated ammonia generator.

While the acquisition expands UPC’s customer base, it will also provide a platform to expand into new markets, extend market penetration in the flow controls market and capitalize on cross-sell opportunities. 

In addition, UPC has enhanced its organizational structure to align with the future direction of the company. As part of the new structure, Jason Jossart, founder and former president of Atmosphere Engineering, will serve as the company’s vice president of operations and report directly to President Paul Oleszkiewicz. Eric Jossart will join UPC as director of sales, heat treat and report directly to Patrick Torok, vice president of sales and marketing.

West Chester, Ohio-based UPC is now comprised of five brands: Atmosphere Engineering, Furnace Control Corp., Marathon Monitors, Process-Electronic and Waukee Engineering
