Marysville, WA - Integrity Machining, Inc., makers of Kolstrand marine deck equipment, today announced the acquisition of all of the assets of J.K. Fabrication, Inc., based in Seattle, WA, effective immediately. The acquisition significantly expands Integrity Machining's already broad product line, to form the most capable supplier in the industry.

“This acquisition marks a transformative moment for Integrity Machining and our customers. Commercial fishermen in the Pacific Northwest have long relied on innovative and rugged Kolstrand and JKFab products and services,” said Paul Glyer, President, Integrity Machining.

JK Fabrication, a widely recognized leader in the market, manufactures Nordic winches and JKFab products. The combination creates the broadest product line in the marine deck equipment industry. Jim Krieder, founder of JK Fabrication, and the entire JK Fabrication team, have relocated to the much larger facility occupied by Integrity Machining in Marysville, WA, conveniently located right off of I-5 at 136th. Customers can continue to purchase new products, obtain spare parts, and have their Nordic winches and JKFab products serviced by calling (206) 297-7400 or (206) 784-2500 or emailing jkfab@kolstrand.com

Remarking on the transaction, Jim Kreider said; "JKFab and Kolstrand are two of the most iconic brands in the marine deck equipment industry. Today marks a seminal day in the future of the Pacific Northwest commercial fisheries as we join forces with Integrity Machining, creating a compelling opportunity for one-stop shopping for customers."

Integrity Machining's updated online store, www.kolstrand.com, not only offers marine parts and products, but makes it easy to find pricing, parts and information within fisheries groups, exploded views, pictures, installation and maintenance information for Kolstrand and JKFab products.

Justin Fontes, co-founder of Integrity Machining commented; "We're thrilled to have Jim and his team become part of our growing family business. JKFab products are a very complimentary fit with our already broad product line. Customers, suppliers and employees all win in this combination!"
