DGI Logan Acquires Hadco Services
Doedijns Group International (DGI), through its US subsidiary Logan Industries International Corporation (DGI Logan), has acquired Hadco Services (Hadco). Hadco is a specialised repair and service company based in Mobile, Alabama.
DGI, headquartered in the Netherlands, is a supplier of hydraulic equipment and repair and maintenance services for a wide variety of industries. The acquisition of Hadco fits perfectly into DGI’s diversification strategy. Hadco has a strong presence in the Alabama steel region and the US dredging industry, two target markets for DGI. Hadco’s focus is on repair and (field) services for hydraulic cylinders, gearboxes, and pumps and further strengthens the repair and maintenance capacity of DGI.
The acquisition of the assets of Hadco follows the opening of DGI Logan’s Louisiana based Offshore Operations & Maintenance Services location in January 2017. The combination of the three USA based DGI Logan locations (Houston, New Iberia and Mobile) gives the company a strong local presence in the oil & gas, steel and dredging industry, enabling DGI Logan to service its customer base locally. In addition, the engineering support will complement Hadco’s repair skills and the scale of the combination will lead to a wider repair and maintenance solutions portfolio. Additionally the support of New Iberia and Houston will open up a higher tier level capacity of repairs to Hadco Services.
Founded in 2005, Hadco is currently owned by its founder, Bobby Hadley. He will remain at Hadco as the General Manager to provide continuity and stability for this business and current customers.
