Romeoville, IL, January 30, 2017 – Mid-West Spring and Stamping, a manufacturing company with locations in Mentone IN and Muskegon MI announced today that Mike Curran and C. J. Overmyer have bought out the majority shares held by co-owner, Jeffrey Ellison. Ellison will retire.
In 2008, Ellison, Curran, and Overmyer purchased the company and successfully navigated it through the 2009 – 2010 recession and have continued to build a strong and lasting company.
Today’s leaner ownership structure will allow an increased focus on strategy and deployment to ensure quality parts and customer service excellence in an ever changing business environment. According to Overmyer, the new structure will free up resources that will allow MWS to continue building the foundations of this company to provide life-long employment and security for its 88 employees and their families.
Overmyer will continue to serve as President. Before joining the company in 1999, he spent his early years in the spring industry with Matthew-Warren Inc. and American Coil Spring.
Curran will continue to serve as the company’s CEO/CFO and has been with the company since 1995. Curran has 40 years of manufacturing accounting experience and believes the strength of MWS rests on a committed workforce and sound internal and accounting controls.
