RelaDyne, one of the nation’s leading providers of lubricants, fuel, diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), and industrial reliability services, announced today that it has acquired Industrial Action Services, Inc. (“IAS”), a national leader in oil flushing and chemical cleaning services.

IAS (, headquartered two hours northeast of Houston, Texas, performs advanced oil flushing and chemical cleaning system decontamination services throughout the United States and Canada. The company was founded in 2007 and has since grown to be a leading industrial services business in the US.

Founder and previous owner of IAS, Kevin Sapp, commented, “We are looking forward to being part of RelaDyne and providing our customers and employees with additional resources we didn’t have access to before.” Sapp, along with the entire IAS team, will stay on full time with RelaDyne and work closely with Scott Hill, RelaDyne Vice President of Reliability Services, to facilitate the acquisition and continued growth and expansion of IAS as part of RelaDyne Reliability Services.

IAS brings to RelaDyne additional experience in varnish removal services and an extensive inventory of prototype equipment and industry knowledge and expertise, particularly within the petrochemical and refinery industries. “The addition of Kevin Sapp and the IAS team brings incredible state-of-the-art processes and techniques to our Reliability Services offering,” states Scott Hill. “Their industry experience will significantly increase what we bring to our existing customers and to the marketplace.”

“We are excited to have IAS join the RelaDyne family,” says Larry Stoddard, RelaDyne CEO. “This acquisition will allow RelaDyne to continue to be the industry leader in Reliability Services for our customer base across the United States and Canada.”

IAS will continue to operate as Industrial Action Services within RelaDyne Reliability Services. IAS is RelaDyne’s second acquisition of the New Year.
