Seaberg Industries A Precision Machining Fabrication Company and More.
Seaberg Industries is a leading manufacturer of metal fabricated and precision machined parts, components and assemblies. These parts include brackets, engine supports, plates, adapters, braces, step assemblies and more.
Founded in 1973 by George Seaberg, at the family home, the company was created to manufacture machined and fabricated products to construction and agricultural OEMs. The company was initially known as ARI Industries and was first located in Bettendorf, IA. The company name was changed to Seaberg Industries after moving to Moline, IL. The company later moved out to the Rock Island, IL, Industrial Park.
A Davenport, IA satellite shipping and warehousing facility was opened in 2005. Two years later, these activities were combined with laser metal cutting in Rock Island about a mile from the main building.
In 2007, a group of five managers bought Seaberg Industries. They shared over 100 years of combined experience with Seaberg Industries. The flatter, nimbler corporate structure is one reason the firm survived the economic downturn. Seaberg Industries rebounded with some of the highest quality, profits, and employee numbers in company history.
On June 9, 2011, Seaberg Industries announced it was moving for a fourth time -- this time to a site in Davenport. The move consolidated all operations of both former facilities under one roof. The present location has 20% more space than both former facilities combined. The more linear work-in-process reduced costs and improved quality.
In 2020, Craig Kinzer retired as president, after 45 years at the company, and Jim Merten retired as CFO, after 35 years at the company.
On September 19, 2020, Crawford Company and Seaberg announced the two businesses had entered into a purchase agreement. Crawford assumed ownership of Seaberg on Oct. 2, 2020. Seaberg has become a new division within Crawford.
Seaberg's current leadership group includes: Keith Gerks, Tim Pratt, and Mark Gray.
Ian Frink and Jim Maynard are the owners of Crawford and Seaberg. Mark Gray is CFO.
