Boyden, Iowa — Officials at Dethmers Manufacturing, commonly known as Demco, have announced that their company has signed an agreement with Thurston Manufacturing Company for the purchase of Thurston’s Cirlce R Dump Trailer line, along with the Circle R brand.
According to Demco, Thurston Manufacturing will continue to produce Circle R Dump Trailers for Demco, during a six-month transition period. These trailers will be marketed under the Circle R brand name through Demco’s Maurer dealer network. This arrangement, according to Demco, is to provide for a smooth changeover and uninterrupted service for both firms and their respective customers.
Demco President Bob Koerselman says his company’s acquisition of Circle R Side Dump Trailers will allow their Maurer division to enter a new marketplace in the construction, and mining industries, while offering their other customers a more complete line of trailers.
Demco was founded in 1950, and acquired Maurer Manufacturing in 2000.
