The History of M & W SHOPS, INC.

Multi-Vac Industrial Vacuums

In 1972, Walter T. Haag and Larry Zamba founded M & W Shops, Inc., in Sturtevant, WI doing welding for J.I. Case Foundry on a part-time basis. Business began to grow and M & W Shops Inc. moved to its current location in Union Grove, WI in 1976. At this time, the company employed one full time employee. In 1981, Wally W. Haag became president of M & W Shops, Inc. and the company began to diversify and flourish. Fabrication equipment was purchased and the company began to build structural weldments for building contractors and construction companies, as well as special industrial vacuum cleaning equipment. M & W Shops, Inc. grew into a full time fabricating and welding shop over the next ten years; acquiring Kraftwell Automation, which is now Kraftweld, a division of M & W Shops, Inc. To accommodate company and business growth, a new 28,500 square foot facility was built in 1991, and in 1992, M & W Shops began the journey into the world of industrial vacuums, thus the beginning of Multi-Vac.

President and owner, Wally Haag has worked in the industrial vacuum field since 1974. In the early 1990's, using Mr. Haag's experience in engineering of heavy duty industrial vacuum equipment and metal fabricating, Multi-Vac was formed: a new, maintenance friendly product line of industrial vacuum equipment, loaders, and conveyors. Since that time, Multi-Vac has become a well known and respected name in steel mills, foundries, cement and brick plants, as well as in the mining, plastic, rubber and chemical industries, just to name a few. Our industrial vacuums can be found from the West Coast to the East Coast, as well as Canada, Mexico, South America, and China. In 2008, M & W Shops progressed into the dust collecting business with specialized Multi-Clean dust collectors.
