Heartland Steel Products LLC (HSP) management has acquired the assets of R. L. Torbeck Industries. HSP, a privately held company that does business as Eugene Welding Company (EWCO Tube – structural steel tubing) and SpaceRak (engineered storage rack systems), will operate Torbeck Industries, LLC from their existing location in Harrison, OH.
Torbeck Industries is a leading producer of material handling and safety equipment used in manufacturing, distribution and warehousing facilities throughout North America. Torbeck’s products focus on increasing in-plant efficiency, space utilization and safety. Torbeck’s products are divided into two distinct product families: Engineered Structural Platforms, which include platforms and support structures, and Saf-T Products, which cover in-plant and barrier protection products.
The new ownership of Torbeck Industries, coupled with the current portfolio of EWCO Tube & SpaceRak, further expands the offering of steel conversion products by HSP, which will now operate facilities based in Marysville and Marlette, MI, and Harrison, OH.
“We are excited about this addition to our product portfolio which enables us to expand our offerings to the various industries we serve, primarily the materials handling industry,” said James Bradshaw, CEO of Heartland Steel Products, LLC. “Torbeck represents a strong brand name and we are excited about bringing Torbeck into the HSP portfolio.”
The HSP executive and sales team will continue to operate in Marysville, MI.
