Planned Merger Announcement

CBSTrucks

Lindquist Steels, Inc. is excited to announce our strategic plan to merge with our sister company, The Chapin & Bangs Company. Lindquist Steels and Chapin & Bangs have been owned and operated by the same family for over 60 years.
Lindquist Steels was founded in 1944 (73 yrs ago) in an unoccupied area of Chapin & Bangs. In 1971 Lindquist Steels moved into a stand-alone facility in Stratford Connecticut where the company has been headquartered ever since. Lindquist has maintained a focus on traditional and advanced tooling materials in combination with state of the art value added processing like high speed square milling, precision saw cutting and grinding.
Chapin & Bangs was established in Bridgeport Connecticut in 1888 and has been operating continuously for 129 years. Chapin & Bangs is a well respected and trusted supplier of carbon and alloys steels in many forms, and offer the region’s most complete value added capabilities. These include multiple laser and waterjet machining centers, high definition plasma cutting, flame cutting, precision sawing and shearing.
By coming together, we are confident that we can maximize each company’s strengths, capabilities and vast experience to bring more flexibility, value and greater options to our valued customer base. Both companies have been actively investing in new equipment, expanded product offerings and enhanced delivery options.
In addition to this move, both companies are actively pursuing a suitable location to expand our current footprint in upper New England. This is an important step forward as both companies have many terrific customers in the region that can benefit from improved service and an expanded product range to choose from.
This is a great opportunity for both companies and for our customers. You can expect all the same services, quality, competitive pricing, and the same friendly voices on the phone, combined with a deeper product range and improved delivery time as a result of this planned merger.
The people, the phone numbers, the email addresses, and even the name will all still be the same. The only change will be our locations and a wider range of options and opportunities for your business.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at 1-800-243-9637 or lsinfo@lindquiststeels.com. Or feel free to contact your outside sales person.

Regards,
Lindquist Steels
