Reviva acquires reman sourcing business to meet growing market demand

Northwest Casting Service, a Portland, Ore., company that specializes in remanufacturing and sourcing heavy-duty engines and components, has been acquired by Reviva, a veteran-owned, engine remanufacturing company headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn.

Reviva intends to expand the NWCS facility and employee base in Portland to accommodate increasing heavy-duty engine demand.

“Paul and Kathy Masters have done a great job creating a company that aligns perfectly with Reviva in terms of culture and product offering,” says Josh Stahl, Reviva CEO. “It is a natural fit; the people and products are excellent, and I am very excited about Reviva’s and NWCS’s future.”

“We are very excited about this opportunity to come together with Reviva,” says Paul Masters, NWCS owner.  “We knew from the beginning that Reviva would be a perfect fit with this business.  The relationship will expand our product offerings while continuing the quality and service our customers have come to expect from NWCS.” 

NWCS was founded by Paul and Kathy Masters in 2001. Both Paul and Kathy have worked at NWCS since its inception and have grown the business from a couple of employees to more than 25.  A key part to NWCS success is a well-developed network of international vendors for castings and assemblies.  Northwest Casting Service offers a variety of engines, castings, and sub-assemblies for industrial applications.

“The acquisition of NWCS provides Reviva with much needed capacity to support growing demand in the commercial diesel engine remanufacturing space” says Nate Williams, Reviva executive vice president. “In a market where speed and uptime are critical, Reviva’s customers will benefit from increased product options and better availability, allowing them to get their truck and/or equipment back into service faster.”
