Betts Spring acquires Life-Time Fenders

Betts Spring Company announced today the acquisition of Life-Time Fenders LLC of Canfield, OH.

Betts is a diversified manufacturing and distribution concern primarily serving the transportation sector. Life-Time Fenders produces metal and plastic fenders to the heavy duty trucking industry.

Life-Time’s well respected fender products compliment Betts’ offering of bar and spring load type mud flap hangers and the innovative DirectFlex System®to create an unparalleled array of spray suppression solutions.

“We’ve had several opportunities over the years to sell or merge our company but never quite found the “right fit” for our family business,” said Shirley Freed, president of Life-Time Fenders. “Betts’ acquisition of our business provides a unique opportunity for the valued employees of Life-Time. We share a long history of service to the heavy duty industry and believe the future of our newly combined businesses to be very bright.”
