Lee Spring Acquires The Kirk-Habicht Company
BROOKLYN, New York, July 26, 2019 – Lee Spring, a global leader in stock and custom springs, announced today the acquisition of The Kirk-Habicht Company. Kirk-Habicht is a manufacturer of custom springs operating in Rosedale, Maryland that was founded in 1907.
Steve Kempf, CEO of Lee Spring, commented that “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. 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.” Steve continued, “This combination is great for both companies and for our customers. 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”.
