Fecon acquired Stumper Industries, an attachment maker.
Fecon, which is headquartered in Ohio, did not disclose a price involved in the acquisition of Michigan-based Stumper, which produces stump grinder attachments for mini and standard skid steers and compact track loaders, excavators and tractor applications.
“We are excited to welcome Stumper into the Fecon family,” said Jeff Stanley, vice president of product development at Fecon. “After listening to our customers, dealers and the market, we recognized a need for a stump grinder that fits key Fecon attributes such as performance and durability with visibility, simplicity and versatility.”
Details of the acquisition include:
- The acquisition expands the landscaping and land maintenance solutions Fecon offers in the forestry mulching and vegetation management industries.
- Stumper’s attachments provide a cost-effective solution for tree service businesses, landscape companies and farm operations to remove debris safely, quickly and efficiently from job sites with equipment they already own.
- The Stumper series features five quick-attach models compatible with compact to heavy-duty machinery. The attachments range from 22- to 36-inch cutting diameters with up to 12-inch cut depths per pass to tackle everything from small jobs to large, stubborn stumps and roots. Additionally, the Stumper Grapple (a heavy-duty, multiuse tool) easily attaches to mini skid-steers to efficiently remove logs and debris from a jobsite.
- The acquisition of Stumper’s stump grinders complements Fecon’s current line of mulching attachments and extends Fecon’s reputation as a leader in the forestry mulching and vegetation management industry.
