Mazzella Acquires Midco


Nov. 2, 2023 - Mazzella Companies, Cleveland, Ohio, has acquired Midco Companies, headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

The acquisition further strengthens Mazzella’s footprint in Texas and the Gulf Coast.

It also reinforces Mazzella’s commitment to being a single source for wire rope and rigging products, engineered lifting solutions, overhead cranes, and inspection and training services.

Midco Companies was founded in 1976 to supply quality wire rope, chain, and rigging to the Dallas and Ft. Worth markets.

In 1980, Midco expanded into San Antonio, Texas, and in 1988 expanded into Longview, Texas.

A full-service rigging supplier, Midco offers slings, wire rope, chain, fall protection devices, hoists, blocks and sheaves, and tie-down accessories.

Effective immediately, Midco Companies will operate as Mazzella Midco.

Terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.

“Midco’s offerings naturally complement Mazzella’s wide range of rigging products and service offerings,” said Matt Mazzella, president of Mazzella Companies. “Both companies are committed to partnering with the best suppliers in the industry, delivering products made from the highest quality materials, and sharing our expertise when it comes to safety and compliance in overhead lifting.”

The acquisition gives Mazzella three more locations in Texas that will also serve customers throughout Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

“We are very pleased to be a part of Mazzella Companies,” said Doug Dry, president and owner of Midco. “I am happy we found such a great home for our Midco team members, and I see a tremendous future for them.”
