Graco Inc., a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, recently announced their complete acquisition of the business of Smith Manufacturing, effective from December 15, 2017.
Smith, located in Pompano Beach, Florida, makes and sells scarifying equipment for both interior and exterior surface preparation. The Smith business will continue to operate out of their existing facility, manufacturing both Smith and Graco scarifying products.
Dale Johnson, President of Graco’s Worldwide Contractor Equipment Division, said, “Smith is a well-known brand for surface preparation and grinding equipment used in striping, road construction, road maintenance and concrete flooring/surfaces. Their broad line of products will be a great addition to our pavement maintenance equipment offering and an excellent complement to our robust family of line striping equipment.”
