Bowco broadens Meadow Burke footprint in underground precast

Meadow Burke has closed on Bowco Industries, crediting the Canby, Ore., company for customer service, high-quality design, and setting “the standard for precision-engineered products for the utility and underground precast industry,” and bringing “Meadow Burke another facet of revolutionary advantage of any other company in the industry.”

Bowco products range from duct terminators and related accessories, threaded inserts and insert locators, plastic coated and galvanized pulling irons, manhole steps, lift pins and septic tank components. “The Bowco line gives [us] the most comprehensive line of precast products, strengthening our leadership position in the concrete accessory industry,” contends Meadow Burke President Jan Olsen.

Beyond Bowco products, he adds, Meadow Burke gains a wealth of industry experience, knowledge and an expanded customer base through the acquisition.

“We see the synergy between Meadow Burke and Bowco as a win-win. The combined strengths of the two companies will logically diversify and grow our market share,” says Vice President of Operations and Development Doug Crawford.
