Ingersoll-Rand Names Allegion Spinoff CEO

Dublin, Ireland-based heavy industrial manufacturer Ingersoll-Rand (NYSE: IR  ) is laying the groundwork for spinning off its Indiana-based, Ireland-registered Allegion subsidiary.

On Tuesday, Ingersoll named Quanex Building Products (NYSE: NX  ) CEO David D. Petratis as the new chairman, president, and CEO of its soon-to-spin-off Allegion subsidiary. Petratis has served as chairman, president, and CEO of Houston-based Quanex since July 2008.

In announcing Petratis' appointment, Ingersoll-Rand CEO Michael W. Lamach called him "an accomplished leader in the manufacturing and marketing of code-compliant, high-value products that are specified by architects and engineers, and used by commercial and residential builders." Lamach also expressed hope that his "vision and leadership [will] help realize Allegion's full potential."

Based in Carmel, Ind., global security products and solutions company Allegion aims to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange, using the ticker symbol ALLE. Post-spinoff, the company will boast $2 billion in annual sales of such products as steel doors and locks. This transaction is expected to take place by year's end.
