“Messner brings an excellent track record in serving customers and providing value. This merger will allow us to continue the expansion of our product offering, services and presence throughout Wisconsin. We are very excited with this opportunity and welcome the Messner team to Nassco,” said Mark Melzer, president of Nassco.
