Dahlstrom Roll Form, a Jamestown business that manufactures custom roll formed metal components, announced Monday it has purchased DC Rollform of Falconer. The acquisition includes the purchase of DC’s 130,000-square-foot building while moving Dahlstrom from its city facility to Falconer.

The consolidation and move to 221 Lister Ave., Falconer, will take place in the third quarter of 2020. Dahlstrom said it will add seven employees from DC’s staff.

“We look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead by growing our business with the merged talents of our employees, and the combined capabilities of our equipment,” said Dahlstrom owner Robert White, who noted that “thanks to inventory buffers and careful planning, Dahlstrom expects no disruption to any of its customer-supply programs.”

The DC Rollform building includes full liquid and powder coating equipment. Dahlstrom said the new feature will immediately eliminate the need for the company to outsource powder coating services, streamlining its customers’ supply chains. Some of DC building’s machines will remain in use, increasing Dahlstrom’s capacity for production of its world-famous metal components.

News of a possible acquisition first came to light in December, when the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency approved a mortgage recording tax exemption for Lakeside Capital Corp., which is doing business as Dahlstrom, for the purchase of the Lister Avenue facility in Falconer. Dahlstrom purchased the building from Inscape NY Inc., which will continue to lease 20,000 square feet and office space in the building for its fabrication business.

Then in January, the IDA approved a preliminary resolution approving of a Payment In Lieu Of Taxes (PILOT) and sales tax exemption agreement with Lakeside Capital for the company’s move from 402 Chandler St., Jamestown, to Falconer.
