Tramec Sloan has acquired Crawford Machine, Inc. (CMI), a producer of brass components and related air assemblies used throughout the tractor and trailer markets in North America.
Galion, Ohio-based CMI employs 135 people, and was founded in 2001 by Hank Hessey and his family. CMI’s customers include the top North American tractor/trailer manufacturers, chassis manufacturers and industrial distribution companies.
Gary E. Sullo, President of Tramec, LLC, says CMI brings North American manufacturing expertise of brass components and their related assemblies to the Tramec Sloan portfolio of products, and significantly expands the company’s manufactured product capabilities to better serve the heavy duty and industrial marketplace.
“CMI has a long-standing reputation of delivering low cost, high quality products in a timely manner,” he says. “Their excellent reputation and success is well known throughout the marketplace.”
Sullo says the combination of CMI and Tramec Sloan provides customers with highly engineered and technologically advanced products manufactured in the U.S.
“The CMI leadership team looks forward to uniting its manufacturing and engineering capabilities with those of the Tramec Sloan Company,” Kevin Hessey, President, CMI, says. “This will provide our combined customers with the most comprehensive product portfolio of highly engineered products that meet their stringent requirements.”
