MKB Company, a Kurtz Brothers company, is proud to announce the acquisition of the assets of ERO-CO, a Springfield, MO manufacturer of compost filter sock and other erosion control products. The deal continues MKB’s geographic expansion of its erosion control and storm water management business to the Midwest to further service its distributors on a regional basis. This latest acquisition gives MKB Company manufacturing locations in State College, PA, Pittsburgh, PA, Columbus, OH, Abbeville, SC, and Springfield, MO.
Travis Gathman of ERO-CO will continue to lead MKB Missouri, LLC as it begins to service distributors in Missouri and beyond. Travis said; “MKB has been a dominate force in the erosion control market! They are an innovator, a powerhouse in production, and a customer service driven company. I am so excited to be part of a team that feels more like a family!” Rob Misso, MKB’s President said; “ERO-CO has been in the erosion control market for 16 years. They have been producing quality products and services for over a decade. We are delighted to be able to support them to grow beyond Springfield, into Kansas City, St. Louis, and the surrounding states.”
