Metalcraft of Mayville Inc., parent company of Scag Power Equipment, has acquired Robbins Manufacturing, Inc.
Located in Fall River, Wisconsin, Robbins Manufacturing is a custom metal fabricator and custom powder coater established in 1989. The company serves industries ranging from lawn and garden, agriculture and recreation, to industrial, transportation and defense.
Metalcraft plans to immediately move some of its existing work into the Fall River plant, as well as invest in upgrading the facility. Doing so will not only benefit all Metalcraft employees, the company reports, but also existing internal brands, external customers and the list of highly valued new customers inherited through the transaction.
All of the 200-plus existing employees at the Fall River location will be retained, states Metalcraft, and the company plans to double the headcount there over time. Additionally, the company reports, the acquisition does not impact the employment status for anyone in Metalcraft’s other facilities; the company will continue its hiring and growth strategies at all facilities.
According to company management, the new location will offer Metalcraft a strong, complementary workforce in a plant that’s very similar and in close proximity to the company’s existing operations. The former Robbins facility provides additional needed capacity to support Metalcraft’s continued growth. In addition, the capabilities and processes gained through the acquisition will allow for further expansion of the company’s product offerings under its Scag Power Equipment and Versatran truck brands.
“We are pleased that we can put our family business of over 30 years in the hands of such a great company as Metalcraft,” says Robbins owner Greg Robbins. “We are positive this will provide a strong future for the operation and its employees.”
