Wieland Metal Services, Warwick, R.I., has acquired Wrisco Industries, a leading distributor of aluminum products. The company is headquartered in Florida with distribution centers in Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago and Edison, N.J.

The acquisition was completed to expand Wieland’s growth objectives in aluminum and further its offerings of diversified solutions and services, company executives said.

“An exciting addition to Wieland Metal Services, Wrisco Industries strengthens our presence in specific aluminum markets. We view Wrisco as a highly strategic growth opportunity that will allow us to further expand our existing portfolio of products and services in North America” said Greg Keown, president of Wieland Metal Services, a subsidiary of Germany’s Wieland Group.

Wrisco Industries Inc. was founded in 1916 and has grown to become a leader in quality aluminum products and services, Wieland claims. The business will continue to operate under the Wrisco name as Wieland works through its transition and integration into the Wieland Group.
