Clark Steel Framing Systems announced the acquisition of Dale Industries. This acquisition was finalized in June and positions Clark Steel Framing as the nations second largest steel framing and lath manufacturer.

Dale Industries has been a provider in the light gauge steel framing, lath, plaster and building products industries for more than 50 years. The company operates five manufacturing facilities that are recognized for providing high levels of quality and service to the marketplace. These plants, located in Michigan, Alabama, Florida and Maryland, help to further Clark Steel Framing's growth plans.

"Our company remains focused on exceeding the expectations of our customers and industry partners by offering an expanded product line supported by strategically located manufacturing facilities," said Bill Courtney, president and CEO of Clark Steel Framing.

During an initial adjustment period, the plants and sales organizations will be restructured to better meet the needs of the customers.
