Tarpon Acquires AKME Controls Ltd.

Tarpon is excited to announce on November 21 the company acquired AKME Controls Ltd. We are excited about this acquisition as it broadens Tarpon’s Saskatchewan geographic footprint into Weyburn and Redvers, and adds to our existing operations in Estevan. Our two companies have many synergies: solid safety and quality cultures, superior customer service and ambitiously passionate employees.

AKME Controls, an electrical and instrumentation provider, was purchased from Eric Kesslering, Matt Axten, Jordan Kawecki and Tyler Greenwald. We are pleased to welcome these gentlemen as well as AKME Controls’ talented and experienced workforce to our organization. This transaction will add 21 talented people whose strong qualifications and experience will complement our highly skilled workforce.

For the past six years, AKME Controls has been providing electrical and instrumentation services to the local industrial and commercial sectors in Weyburn, Redvers and Estevan.

The company offers a diverse range of instrumentation, electrical and upstream measurement and meter proving services.


“We’re excited to join a strong and growing company in the electrical, instrumentation and controls market space,” said Eric Kesslering and Matt Axten. “Tarpon’s leadership team is very passionate about growing the business while still recognizing that the employees are the most valuable asset they have. Tarpon has a vast resource pool to draw from which is important for both our employees and our customers. Using these resources will help us to concentrate our efforts on growing Tarpon in our area.”
