C&C Manufacturing announces purchase of Al-Jon Manufacturing LLC's Scrap Products Division
C&C Manufacturing LLC of Centerville, Iowa has announced its purchase of Al-Jon Manufacturing LLC's Scrap Products Division, located in Ottumwa, Iowa. The business was purchased from Republic Financial Corp., owner of Al-Jon Manufacturing. C & C has had a long-standing relationship with Al-Jon providing large precision machined weldments, a C&C specialty, since 1996. C&C owners Gaylon and Geoff Cowan are delighted with their newest acquisition.
"Al-Jon has been a family-owned and operated business since John Kneen opened it in 1963, We are incredibly excited to purchase a company with 54 years of great history in the scrap metal and scrap vehicle recycling industries," said C&C President Gaylon Cowen.
"We are confident that C&C's own commitment to excellence in manufacturing and customer service will help us carry on the legacy of quality, reliability and value that Al-Jon has been known for worldwide," added Geoff Cowan, Vice President. Curt Spry, a 25-year veteran in the scrap industry, 22 years with Al-Jon, will act as Sales Manager for the scrap equipment product line.
“It is my intention to work with our C&C sales, service and manufacturing teams to quickly instill market confidence and familiarity with the new C&C brand," said Spry. "The name will change but the scrap processing equipment together with back-up service and parts support we supply to the market will be the same or better."
The company will continue to operate out of its 150,000 sq-ft Ottumwa, Iowa facility.
