Crawford Company Announces Purchase Agreement with Seaberg Industries
Crawford Company and Seaberg Industries are pleased to announce the two businesses have agreed to enter into a purchase agreement.
Crawford Company will assume ownership of Seaberg Industries on Oct. 2, 2020. Seaberg will become a new division within Crawford Company. It is the intent that employees of Seaberg will be retained and become employees of Crawford Company. Seaberg will continue to do business as usual -- including the same contact information and internal structure. Seaberg Industries remains at 2395 West Lake Blvd., Davenport, IA 52804. Seaberg’s phone number (563-445-2130) and web address (www.seaberginc.com) will be retained.
The business was founded by George Seaberg in 1973. Seaberg Industries is a leading manufacturer of metal fabricated and precision machined parts, components, and assemblies. These parts include brackets, engine supports, plates, adapters, braces, step assemblies, and more. Presently, Seaberg has five owners: Craig Kinzer, Jim Merten, Ray Clark, Tony Alvarado, and Brian DeKeyzer.
Crawford Company, founded in 1952, currently specializes in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing, drain cleaning, electrical, laser cutting, specialty welded fabrication, brewing equipment, custom architectural products, and Monoxivent products and services. Crawford has been located in Rock Island for its entire 68-year history. Crawford also has a location in Dubuque, IA. Crawford serves industrial, commercial, and residential markets. Crawford owners are Ian Frink and Jim Maynard.
Seaberg’s business model aligns with Crawford’s Fabrication Division. Keith Gerks, Crawford Fabrication Division Manager, will play a key role in this transition.
