Square Deal Machining expands with acquisition

February 23, 2021 By    

Square Deal Machining Inc. (SDMI) is expanding its business operations with the acquisition of Kurtz Truck Equipment, a local truck equipment and fabrication company based in Marathon, New York.

The acquisition aims to expand production and continue to provide machining and fabrication services with faster processing times, according to SDMI.

With this acquisition, the business structure of Kurtz Truck Equipment will remain the same, and all employees will operate separately from SDMI.

Kurtz Truck Equipment is a manufacturer of propane trucks, crane trucks and dump bodies.

“After getting to know the team at SDMI, it became clear that they were the perfect partner to expand with to provide the same high-quality service and technologies to our customer base that encompasses seven states and multiple markets,” says Roger Smith, general manager and vice president of Kurtz Truck Equipment.

SDMI, which began as a one-room machine shop in Marathon, New York, has grown into a 300,000-sq.-ft. machining facility that offers full-service fabrication, machining and welding capabilities.

The upstate New York company employs hundreds of regional residents, is able to keep most of its operations completely in-house and has expanded to multiple facilities in the state.

“Kurtz Truck Equipment has been known for its high-quality equipment and its fabricators in the machining industry as well as locally,” says Joe Morgan, CEO of SDMI. “Bringing on Kurtz Truck Equipment into our fold of companies will allow us to exceed our customers’ expectations and needs through our cutting-edge technology and excellent workforce.”
