History

In 1998 Canisco Resources, a publicly traded company based out of Wilmington, Delaware, became one of the largest industrial painting and coatings contractors in the U.S. by combining Cannon-Sline, Mansfield Industrial and Isolve.

In 2000 Canisco Resources, then consisting of Mansfield Industrial Coatings and Cannon Sline accepted an offer for acquisition from Kenny Industrial Services.  The former Canisco companies became part of the Kenny Team, which consisted of J.L. Manta, Genesee and Golf Construction.  

In 2003, Kenny Industrial reincorporated under the new name K2 Industrial.  Through both strategic acquisitions and internal resource growth, K2 Industrial has transformed itself from a large painting and industrial cleaning contractor into an industry-leading provider of industrial coatings, insulation, fireproofing, industrial cleaning, roofing, scaffolding and structural steel and metal building erection services.  The K2 family of companies now includes Mansfield Industrial, KM Plant Services, Cannon Sline, KM Industrial and KA Industrial Services.  This team is without a doubt the largest and most experienced network of industrial coatings services in the Americas.

In November 2011, The Halifax Group partnered with K2 Industrial Services. The Halifax Group is a private equity firm that partners with managers and entrepreneurs to recapitalize and grow lower middle-market businesses across a variety of industries including health and wellness, infrastructure, business and government services and franchising. The firm maintains offices in Washington, D.C.; Dallas, TX; and Raleigh, NC. For more information, please visit www.thehalifaxgroup.com.
