December 19, 2018

MAYVILLE -- Metalcraft of Mayville Inc. announced the acquisition of FJR Manufacturing, located in West Bend, effective Monday.

“These are exciting times at Metalcraft of Mayville,” said Metalcraft CEO Martin Gallun. “With the additional innovation and automation capabilities resulting from this acquisition, we will now be able to tackle projects that our teams never thought were possible.”

Gallun said FJR Manufacturing will help take Metalcraft to new heights. Metalcraft currently uses robotics and mechanization to assist in many manufacturing processes. By having these additional in-house automation capabilities, Metalcraft plans to expand and accelerate automation projects into new applications to improve overall capacity, safety and efficiency challenges.

Metalcraft will retain all existing FJR employees. This acquisition does not impact the employment status for anyone in Metalcraft’s other three facilities: West Bend, Mayville and Beaver Dam. The company will continue its hiring and growth strategies as communicated to its work groups.
