The Cleveland Vibrator Company (CVC), a manufacturer of custom industrial vibrators and vibratory equipment, acquired Fastfeed Corp. in Lodi, Ohio.

Fastfeed is a provider of automation systems for parts alignment, feeding and handling. The company’s facility in Lodi will remain in operation, CVC says, and CVC anticipates adding a handful of jobs between the Lodi and Cleveland locations during the next few years.

“We are excited to add the manufacturing, design and problem-solving capabilities of Fastfeed,” says Craig Macklin, CEO of CVC. “This acquisition immediately enhances our offerings and value to our customers as a single-source provider of vibratory solutions for flow and processing challenges with bulk material and parts.

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

Dan Reed, Fastfeed president, looks forward to the growth ahead and penetrating new markets as part of CVC.

“Since Fastfeed was founded by my family in 1997, the company has been committed to designing unique systems that solve customer application problems,” Reed says.
