Niece Equipment/NIEMCO has recently welcomed Klein Products of Kansas to its family of companies. The acquisition, which was finalized in August, not only expands each company’s product line and services, but also adds to the years of experience each has in the construction and mining equipment field. Combined, the companies offer the industry more than 90 years of proficiency and skill.

Though Klein Products of Kansas will now identify as Klein-Niece, at the moment, nothing else will change, said Al Niece, founder and president of Niece Equipment and NIEMCO.

“Klein-Niece will operate completely autonomous from Niece Equipment [and NIEMCO],” he said, adding that business partner Pat Flanagan will run the daily operations of Klein-Niece, with Tom Schnackenberg, production and sales manager, alongside.

“The addition of Klein-Niece will complete a full line of larger units for mines and quarries worldwide,” Niece said, noting that Klein-Niece, which is located in Ft. Scott, Kan., has actively continued to fill a list of orders for clients based as far as South Africa and Australia. He adds that his line of smaller water and fuel/lube trucks and tanks manufactured by NIEMCO will continue operations in Austin.

With the acquisition complete, Niece’s eagerness to continue growing each company has sparked the initiative to add to the development of newer, more effective construction and mining equipment for the industry.

“We are working on developing a complete and thorough product line involving all of the Niece companies,” said Niece.
