Titan, a manufacturer of professional-grade sprayers and application equipment, has acquired Advanced Striping Equipment, a Douglasville, Ga.-based manufacturer of specialized road-marking equipment including thermoplastic walk-behind machines, intermediate stripers and truck-mounted units.

“ASE’s thermoplastic equipment is a natural extension to Titan’s line of pavement marking systems and will help accelerate our growth on a global basis,” said Greg McGuirk, senior vice president of sales for Titan. “By combining ASE’s technology and its leadership team’s industry expertise with Titan’s sales, service and marketing resources, we will provide even stronger solutions to the industry.”

The ASE staff and operations will remain intact and continue to operate in Douglasville. Titan said it plans to support and develop ASE’s current product line and introduce new products and technologies that will expand both ASE and Titan brand offerings in the pavement-marking industry.

“ASE and Titan share similar values, always focused intently on developing innovative products and providing industry-leading customer service,” said Tom Waxler, president of ASE.
