Minneapolis, MN—Lexington Manufacturing, a large-scale producer of components for major brands in window and doors, named three new managers—left to right: Steve Bloch, Jake Bickell, and Jim Bouma—at its operations in Brainerd and Coon Rapids, MN.
Headquartered in Minneapolis, Lexington Manufacturing was acquired in 2019 by Watkins Associated Industries, based in Atlanta, GA. Privately-held Watkins businesses include real estate, food processing, insurance services, and building materials.
Watkins President Eric Wahlen says the stable, long-term management team at Lexington led by owners Bob Dimke, CEO and VP John Dimke, and Mike Dillon, president, attracted his company’s acquisition. They remain in place as Watkins invests into Lexington’s core business.
“We allow presidents of our businesses to operate independently, while partnering with them in goal setting,” says Wahlen. “We look forward to leveraging our core competencies of strategic business planning, disciplined investment, and operational measurement to help Lexington Manufacturing reach its goals for the future.”
