Holt Cat acquires Sullair of Houston

Jan. 17, 2021

Holt Cat®, San Antonio, has acquired Sullair of Houston, a fixed and portable compressed air dealer. 

Sullair of Houston is headquartered in Houston with satellite locations in Odessa and San Antonio, Texas. As the distributor for Sullair commercial air compressors, Sullair of Houston’s dealer territory covers nearly half the counties in Texas, including Houston, Austin, San Antonio, the Rio Grande Valley and the majority of west Texas, aligning with many of the counties that Holt Cat presently services.

“We are excited to welcome the Sullair of Houston team to Holt,” said Peter Holt, CEO of Holt Cat. “We share the same core values and each bring a relentless focus on providing legendary service to our customers. Acquiring Sullair of Houston allows us to expand our list of products and services within a growing market.”

Stationary air compressors are used extensively in manufacturing, material handling, petrochemical, food service and construction applications, among others, the company says. In addition, portable compressors are a key product in rental fleets, including Texas First Rentals and Holt Cat’s Power Systems Rentals.

Sullair of Houston will be a wholly owned subsidiary. Brad Bonnecaze, general manager of Sullair of Houston, will report to Holt.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Holt family of companies and the strong culture it represents,” said Bonnecaze. “In order to maintain our deep customer relationships in the industry and our outstanding reputation, Sullair of Houston employees will continue in their current roles.”
