Lee Spring, maker of stock and custom springs, has announced the acquisition of The Kirk-Habicht Company. Kirk-Habicht, founded in 1907, is a manufacturer of custom springs operating in Rosedale, MD.
“Kirk-Habicht is a great fit for Lee Spring. They have a dedicated and talented group of employees that are cross-trained and a modern facility that will expand our manufacturing capacity in the United States," said Steve Kempf, CEO of Lee Spring. "Lee Spring recently celebrated our 100th anniversary, and Kirk-Habicht has over 112 years in business, so it is exciting to have these two long-standing companies moving into the future together.”
Headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, Lee Spring specializes in mechanical springs and related products, stocking more than 25,000 stock springs. It also manufactures custom springs to customer specifications. Established in 1918, the ISO 9001:2015-certified company has multiple locations in the United States, as well as locations in Mexico, Europe, China, and India.
“This combination is great for both companies and for our customers," said Kempf. "Kirk-Habicht’s employees will remain in their current facility, which allows for them to continue to provide the same excellent support to their customers, but they will now also have access to a wider range of capabilities through Lee Spring. This acquisition will help serve customers by offering more manufacturing options and capabilities from two very experienced companies.
