Eberl Iron Works, Inc. purchases Buffalo Metal Forming
First acquisition for 90-year-old company
BUFFALO, NY – Eberl Iron Works, Inc. didn’t need to look far to make the first acquisition in its 90-year history. Buffalo Metal Forming has been its neighbor on Sycamore Street for almost two decades. EIW will take over BMF’s operation on January 24th.
“Buffalo Metal Forming fits perfectly into our Metal Fabrication Services division,” said John C. Eberl, chief executive officer. “The acquisition will not only broaden our our custom fabricating capabilities, but also enable us to diversify and expand our product lines.”
“With greater precision sheet metal capabilities, we can grow established product lines, such as perorated stair pans and rooftop support systems,” he elaborated. “We also anticipate augmenting newer lines, such as ladder cages. This should help us grow both locally and nationally.”
Buffalo Metal Fabricating was founded in 1992 by Alfred Fleischauer, who is now retired. EIW plans new investments in the facility and equipment. Two employees will be added immendiately, with further hires in coming months, as needs dictate.
Established in 1923, Eberl Iron Works serves markets across the Northeast. Its manufacturing and distribution businesses include custom metal fabrication, Unistrut metal framing products, traffic safety products, rooftop support systems and system installation.
