Bonnell Industries Inc. is excited to announce that we have acquired the assets of the Flink Company located in Streator, Illinois. Bonnell Industries will not be acquiring the company, land, or building in Streator, Illinois. We will operate and service from our headquarters location in Dixon, Illinois.
Flink Company’s relation to Bonnell Industries has been competitive over the years. Flink began in 1929 as a farm implement dealership in Streator, and by 1941 due to wartime demand, they began producing Spreaders for snow and ice control. Then by 1955 Flink purchased the Baker Manufacturing Company’s snow plow division, and they have been manufacturing plows ever since then. With Flink being right at Bonnell’s back door and in our specific target market, the acquisition of the products and its business was very appealing.
Bonnell Industries officially closed on this acquisition on December 5, 2022, and plans are in place to begin production of Flink products by January 2023. After the acquisition, Bonnell Industries Inc. plans to continue to support and service all Flink Dealers and partners in the same manner that Flink has always serviced their customers.
