Scag’s Parent Company Expands Manufacturing Footprint
Mayville, Wis. – The parent company of Scag Power Equipment, Metalcraft of Mayville Inc., is pleased to announce the acquisition of Robbins Manufacturing, Inc., located in Fall River, WI, effective August 23, 2021.
The company’s foundational belief that “Employees Make the Difference” remains evident, as Metalcraft will retain all of the more than 200 existing employees at the Fall River location. Metalcraft has plans to double the headcount there over time. Additionally, this 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 as recently communicated to its work groups.
According to company management, this new location offers Metalcraft a strong, complementary workforce in a plant that is 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 this acquisition will allow for further expansion of the company’s product offerings under its industry leading Scag Power Equipment and Versatran truck brands.
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, but also existing internal brands, external customers and the list of highly valued new customers inherited through the transaction.
“We are pleased that we can put our family business of over 30 years in the hands of such a great company as Metalcraft,” said Robbins owner, Greg Robbins. “We are positive this will provide a strong future for the operation and its employees”
