Chart Industries Inc. acquired Germany’s VCT Vogel GmbH, which services cryogenic and other mobile gas tank equipment and trucks. VCT also manufactures and supplies truck-mounted drive and control systems for the operation of cryogenic pumps on trailers, rigid trucks and containers.

The acquisition expands and strengthens Chart’s service and aftermarket presence in southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland and adds complementary truck drive systems to its services. 

According to Chart, VCT will become a regional service provider for Chart Ferox and Flow Instruments products.
