Capital City Manufacturing buys company, changes name

April 24, 2013 -  By

Capital City Manufacturing has purchased Graham Lawn Equipment from founders Max and Judy Graham, who have retired.

The company will now be known as Graham Spray Equipment, a division of Capital City Manufacturing, to reflect the diverse industries it serves.

“To reflect all the products we make, we have changed our name to Graham Spray Equipment,” said Capital City Manufacturing CEO Richard Bare, who also is owner and CEO of Arbor-Nomics Turf, an Atlanta-area lawn care firm. “For years, Graham has supplied spraying equipment not only for lawns but also for trees, shrubs, orchards, pest and termite control, agricultural applications and almost anything else that requires a vehicle-mounted sprayer.”

To assure longtime customers who depend on a high level of customer service delivered by people they have come to know, Bare said the same people will continue the Graham tradition of providing high-quality, reliable products and personal service.

To serve customers better, the company plans to add several new services, including:

• commonly used truck beds will be in stock for immediate delivery;
• decreased lead time on the production of units;
• an updated website (by June) with online parts ordering;
• improved parts inventory to reduce backorders;
• more competitive parts pricing;
• expanded service hours; and
• a new branch in Norcross, Ga., for parts, service and repairs (new rigs, parts and repair will continue to be available at Graham Spray Equipment’s original location in Douglasville, Ga.)

The company said it also will retain and strengthen other key services, such as:

• special financing on Isuzu trucks equipped with Graham spray units,
• truck delivery, and
• unit refurbishing to keep equipment looking new.
