Acquires Robbins Manufacturing Inc.

The owner of Scag Power EquipmentMetalcraft of Mayville Inc, has announced the purchase of Robbins Manufacturing, Inc, based in Fall River, Wisconsin, effective August 23, 2021.

In an official statement Metalcraft said they will retain all of the more than 200 existing employees at the Fall River location. The company also has plans to double the headcount there over time. Additionally, they said, this acquisition does not impact the employment status for anyone in Metalcraft’s other facilities. The company say they will continue its hiring and growth strategies at all facilities.

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. They say the former Robbins facility provides additional needed capacity to support their continued growth.

In addition, the manufacturer says the capabilities and processes gained through this acquisition will allow for further expansion of their product offerings under its 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. 

“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”
