The Cleveland Vibrator Company (CVC), a leading manufacturer of custom industrial vibrators and vibratory equipment, has acquired Fastfeed Corp. in Lodi, OH, according to Craig Macklin, CVC’s CEO.

“Since Fastfeed was founded by my family in 1997, the company has been committed to designing unique systems that solve customer application problems,” said Dan Reed, Fastfeed president. “We look forward to growth and penetrating new markets as part of Cleveland Vibrator Co.”

Macklin added, “Cleveland Vibrator is thrilled to add such an excellent brand and a team of people with a history of success in the automation category. Together, we will be building on our corporate purpose: To build a company you can depend on for years to come.”
