OMCO, the largest manufacturer of custom roll-formed parts in the United States, has purchased Weaver & Sons, Inc., located in Talladega, AL.This acquisition adds a broad scope of metal fabrication capabilities to OMCO’s already dominant roll-forming expertise, while also providing OMCO with a manufacturing presence in the southeastern United States. Weaver & Sons has established a strong reputation as a high-quality manufacturer of precision sheet and plate metal components, as well as a custom and contract metal fabricator. Its customers manufacture products for a wide range of industries including agricultural equipment, aircraft support, forestry, mining, industrial manufacturing, foundries, and others.
According to OMCO’s President and CEO Gary Schuster, “We are very excited about all of the new possibilities that this acquisition represents. Weaver & Sons is a high-quality metal parts fabricator that will add a new dynamic to OMCO’s existing selection of industry-leading roll forming and metal processing services. In addition, it provides OMCO with a footprint in the southeastern region of the country which will allow us to better serve current customers in that area as well as expand our base of roll forming business.” Weaver & Sons was founded in 1945 by George Lynn Weaver, a decorated World War II veteran and Prisoner of War who returned home and established the company with his brother Martin D. Weaver Jr. and father Martin D. Weaver Sr. In 1989, Lynn Weaver’s daughter, Lily and her husband Dyron Overton moved to Talladega to join Weaver & Sons. Lily and Dyron have been the owners and operating managers for most of the past 25 years.
