Wieland Acquires Marjan, Nasco

By Metal Center News Staff on

Global red metals company Wieland, through its Wieland Metal Services, has made two acquisitions in North America. The German-based Wieland has acquired Marjan and Nasco.

Marjan, which operates facilities in Waterbury, Conn., and Montgomery, Ill., offers a range of hot-dip tin coatings to its global customer base. Its end markets include connectors, computers, automotive, electrical and stampings.

Nasco Inc., also based in Waterbury, provides toll processing of copper and stainless products to U.S. customers. Its services include slitting, strip-edging, cut-to-length and leveling.

The companies will transition over the next two months to begin operating as Wieland Marian.

“A terrific complement to Wieland Metal Services, the acquisition broadens the customer base already served by Wieland’s global distribution network, initiates our strategic expansion into hot-dip tinning in North America and brings us closer to the end-user of our products,” said Greg Keown, president of Wieland Metal Services. 

Wieland Group has been growing its presence in North America over the past several years, starting with the acquisition of Global Brass and Copper in 2019. Earlier this year, Wieland North America acquired Scott Brass.
