This is in lieu of a previously announced divestiture of its Nuclear Logistics (NL) operating business unit to Westinghouse.

The combined capabilities of both organizations will provide unparalleled products and services focused on meeting the nuclear industry's equipment challenges with cost-effective, technically superior, high-quality equipment solutions.

"As the world pivots to cleaner energy, this agreement reflects our shared commitment to the nuclear industry and provides our mutual customers high-quality design, manufacturing, testing, qualification, and commercial grade dedication services while supporting our critical global energy needs," said David Howell, Senior Vice President, Westinghouse Operating Plants Business.

Tom Ferguson, Chief Executive Officer of AZZ, commented, "Both parties made significant progress but it became apparent that the market needed us to focus on building our heritage businesses. We are confident that this alliance represents the most effective and expeditious path forward.

"We are pleased to move forward on an agreement that leverage's Westinghouse's OEM strength and NL's aftermarket capabilities to offer our customers a higher level of service and solutions. We believe this will be a mutually beneficial agreement for both parties."
