Scag Power Equipment Acquires Giant-Vac

November 6, 2012 — Scag Power Equipment and its parent company, Metalcraft of Mayville, are pleased to announce the acquisition of Giant-Vac. The acquisition of Giant-Vac assets was completed by Metalcraft on November 5, 2012.

According to John Crowson, President of Scag Power Equipment, “this acquisition joins two great names and traditions in the power equipment industry. Giant-Vac has lead in innovation in debris handling equipment since 1966 and Scag has been widely recognized as a leader in commercial mowers for more than 30 years. This combination will greatly expand our offering of high quality, high value products.”

“We look forward to applying the manufacturing strength of Metalcraft and the marketing and engineering capabilities of Scag to the Giant-Vac line of debris products.”

Scag Power Equipment, a division of Metalcraft of Mayville Inc., is one of the largest independent manufacturers of commercial mowing equipment in the country.  Metalcraft of Mayville Inc., an ISO 9001:2008 Registered company, manufactures products in its two facilities, totaling over 680,000 square feet, located in Mayville and West Bend, Wisconsin.
