Dave Steel Company Inc, a US family owned steel fabrication company that services commercial and industrial projects, announced today that Walters Group, a Canadian fabrication company has completed a significant minority acquisition of ownership of Dave Steel Company, Inc.

Much like Dave Steel Company, Walters Group is a family-owned business with a long history in steel fabrication and construction. With three plants in Ontario, Canada, Walters Group designs, fabricates, and constructs commercial and industrial projects throughout North America. They offer a full range of services from construction engineering and design-assist, to detailing and fabrication, sophisticated coatings, delivery and erection.

Dave Steel Company will continue to operate as a separate entity under the current leadership of Jeffrey Dave, President. Walters Group will have representation on the Dave Steel Company Board of Directors.

Dave Steel Company views this partnership as a strategic alignment that offers benefits for both companies. For Dave Steel Company, Walters Group's experience in steel erection will allow them to round out their service offering to clients by providing supply and install projects using in-house capabilities. The partnership also secures a strong future for the next generations of the business.

Mr Jeff Dave, President, Dave Steel Company, Inc said that "As a family business, we're always thinking about how we can evolve and create a sustainable business for future generations. We see this partnership as a very positive development for our business; one that will re-energize our growth plans and provide us with the right management for the future.”

For Walters Group, having a physical presence in the US provides opportunities to service clients on a broader scale and offer expanded capacity through joint projects.

Mr Walt Koppelaar, VP Sales and Markets, Walters Group said that "There was a natural fit in the DNA of our businesses. From our first discussions, we saw how our approach to doing business aligned. Through more discussions, we continued to see synergies. We saw how this partnership could help both of our companies better serve our clients and grow our businesses across North America.”

Both companies also see the opportunities to advance more quickly by sharing technology and process best practices, and see the potential for increased buying power for raw materials that could increase competitiveness.
