“Our employees are excited to combine forces with another experienced, family-owned industry leader,” said Craig Hayward, president of Indusco. “Personally, I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with Tony Mazzella and his management team, many of whom I have known for the past ten years. Tony and I share a common vision with respect to building organizational strength through the implementation of best practices and continuing our growth through the acquisition of other family-owned and operated businesses within our industry.“

Tony Mazzella and Craig Hayward will be responsible for running Mazzella Holding Companies.
