Sentry Equipment Corp is a leading worldwide supplier of industrial sampling products and systems. The company had announced its acquisition of the Kilgore,Texas based Accurate Tool Company. The acquisition of Accurate Tool's assets would significantly expand Sentry's products and systems portfolio.

Accurate Tool manufactures equipment to monitor corrosion. This is done by extracting gas and liquid samples from pipelines.

According Brian Baker, President and CEO of Sentry Equipment Corp., "The Accurate Tool acquisition positions us for significant future growth by playing into the U.S. energy boom. Technologies such as fracking have increased oil and gas production in the U.S. to levels not seen in 40 years. This energy boom is expected to last a generation or longer. Pipelines are the safest and most efficient way to move petroleum products and monitoring corrosion in pipelines is a top priority for the operator. Sentry brings significant resources to expand Accurate Tool's product offerings and geographic reach."
