MILWAUKEE, WI -- F. Barkow Inc. of Milwaukee, WI, announced today that they are offering a popular customer incentive to help mark the company's 125th anniversary. Customers who purchase aluminum or stainless steel stone carriers in the months of July or August 2004 will receive $150 worth of free parts.

The offer applies to orders booked and paid for in the months of July or August, and may only be used for the purchase of additional parts. Some of Barkow's best-selling parts include its patented Stake-Loc[r] stakes, Barkow loadholding straps, Barkleats[r] and Barpads[r]. The $150 discount may not be applied to shipping charges, sales tax or taken as a discount on a stone carrier order. (Please note that this offer is not valid on the purchase of steel carriers.)

Founded in 1879 in Milwaukee, F. Barkow Inc. is a glass handling business, and has taken a generations-old idea to create a solution to fabricators' stone carrying needs. John Weise, F. Barkow president, will be announcing additional special offers throughout 2004. “This is one of the many ways we want to reward our loyal customers, and welcome new customers to the Barkow family,” he said. “We have been family-owned and operated for five generations, and could not have gotten this far without the continued loyalty of our customers.”
