Top-quality steel products
Headquartered in Sleepy Eye, MN, Haala Industries was founded by Dave Haala in 1974 as a fabrication company for local agricultural and construction needs. For nearly 50 years, Haala has designed and manufactured top-quality steel products and has established itself as a leader in fabricated rebar mats, wire cone cages, threaded products and drainage gates and guards. With its range of offerings and reputation for quality and innovation, the acquisition of Haala bolsters the Afinitas concrete accessories portfolio and expands its ability to provide customers with more service and selection.
“We are excited to welcome Haala’s experienced team to the Afinitas family,” said Brad Schmidgall, Afinitas CEO. “Their impressive design and manufacturing capabilities, coupled with our strong operations and product offerings enhances our leadership position in bringing innovative solutions to our customers.”
“Since our founding, Haala has grown and thrived by providing dependable, economical solutions for our customers,” said Ed Sexe, Haala CEO. “We are thrilled to join forces with Afinitas, a highly respected company that will position us for future success and continue to build on our reputation as an industry leader.”
Reflecting on his many years in business, Dave Haala expressed gratitude for the dedication and commitment of his current and former employees. “Without them, we never would have had the success and growth we’ve had over the past 48 years.”
The acquisition of Haala Industries is in line with Afinitas’ strategy to build the premier platform of concrete technologies and provide a differentiated level of product expertise to producers of infrastructural products. Haala’s extensive variety of products complements Afinitas’ concrete accessory product lines which include steel and plastic spacers, steel stirrup mats, lifting devices, fasteners, manhole steps, and magnets, among other products.
