A leading custom metal fabrication and manufacturing company, Kasa Fab, has been acquired by Vortex Global. Located in Kansas, Kasa Fab is a division of Kasa Companies.
Made effective on 1 September, the acquisition will allow Vortex to operate upwards of 250 000 ft2 of manufacturing space and employ more than 400 employees in Kansas. Kasa Fab will operate under the Vortex brand name.
“This acquisition allows Vortex to expand upon our fabrication capabilities, including lasers, robotic welders, blasting booths, and liquid and powder paint systems, among others,” said Travis Young, Executive Vice President at Vortex. “Over the past few years, Vortex has rapidly grown its carbon steel fabrication. By having two manufacturing sites, we will better serve Vortex’s current customer base, as well as our new customers brought over from Kasa Fab.”
“We are happy to be welcoming Kasa Fab’s employee group into the Vortex family,” said Jeff Thompson, President and CEO at Vortex. “Both companies have very similar cultures and core competencies. Plus, we are always looking for great people who share our values to join our team.”
Vortex provides slide gates, diverter valves, and loading solutions for dry bulk goods handling in gravity, vacuum, dilute or dense phase applications.
