Meyer Products LLC, the Cleveland OH-based manufacturer of commercial snowplows, has acquired Magnum Spreaders, a subsidiary of Imperial Electric in Akron OH. Magnum is one of the top salt and sand spreader lines in the snow and ice management industry.
The acquisition includes the entire inventory of Magnum Spreaders' poly tailgate spreaders, and the rights to the Magnum brand and tooling.
“These tailgate spreaders add depth to our lineup and allow us to compete for popular applications we didn't have covered before,” says Andrew Outcalt, president of Meyer.
Meyer plans to keep the Magnum brand alive by continuing to sell the brand to Magnum's current truck equipment distributors. For Meyer truck equipment distributors, it will rename the Magnum brand to Meyer Blaster and will sell four models of salt or salt and sand Meyer Blasters. Imperial Electric will continue as a supplier of motors for both the Magnum and Blaster brands.
