Habco, Inc.

Habco-Loram, Inc,

Habco International, Inc.


Habco, Inc. was jointly owned by Donald Boatright and Donald Horne until 1976 and then owned principally by Donald Horne.  In 1986, Habco, after deciding to dissolve, sold all of its operating assets (except for the hazard contaminated Armour Road real property) to a new company named Habco-Loram, Inc., for approximately $2.6 million.   In 1988, apparently unable to meet its obligations, they agreed to convey all of the pledged assets to Donald Horne as part of a voluntary foreclosure and in satisfaction of its notes. Donald Horne then formed Habco International, Inc.  The company was taken over by DeAngelo Brothers, Inc, in October 1998.
