“With the acquisition of Schneider, it strengthens our position in Western Wisconsin and provides entry for Kurz into industries such as the agricultural, HVAC and waste-water treatment industries” said Brian Nowak, President & CEO of Kurz Industrial Solutions.  “We are very impressed with Jim and his staff and the job they have done to develop iron-clad customer relationships over the years.”
