NEW YORK, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Affiliates of USJ-IMECO Holding Company, LLC ("USJ-IMECO"), a portfolio company of J.F. Lehman & Company ("JFLCO"), today announced the acquisition of Robichaux Automation and Control, Inc. ("RAACI" or the "Company"). RAACI designs, assembles and integrates electrical, control and automation systems for commercial and government vessels. The Company's core systems and product offerings include a range of proprietary ship control, alarm, monitoring, propulsion, switchboard and power management systems as well as other advanced marine technologies. The Company is headquartered just outside New Orleans, LA.

Tom Eccles, Chief Executive Officer of USJ-IMECO, said, "We are very pleased to welcome RAACI and its employees to the USJ-IMECO family. The addition of RAACI adds a highly complementary set of engineered electrical, control and automation solutions and capabilities to the USJ-IMECO platform which will ultimately allow us to better serve our customers. This acquisition also strengthens our presence in the U.S. Gulf Coast region and improves our ability to support shipyards serving the oil and gas market."
Former owners Trudy and Dennis Robichaux will continue to play key roles leading the RAACI division of USJ-IMECO. Mr. Robichaux stated, "Trudy and I believe the combination of USJ-IMECO and RAACI is in the best interest of our employees and our customers.
