R-O-M acquires Bustin

R-O-M Corporation has acquired Bustin Industrial Products from MW Supply Inc of Glen Rose TX.

Bustin, based in East Stroudsburg PA (north of Philadelphia), manufactures truck and trailer access products such as walkramps, steps and ladders, and platforms as well as industrial safety access systems that include crossovers, servicing platforms, ladders, handrails, and work stands.

MW Supply will return to its roots as a manufacturer of cargo control systems and will continue to distribute safety access systems as a reseller for R-O-M and Bustin products.

The acquisition was announced by R-O-M president Jeff Hupke, who emphasized that, while the ownership of Bustin has changed, everything else will remain the same. Engineering, manufacturing, sales, finance, and human resources responsibilities will remain at Bustin's Pennsylvania facility. Operations at R-O-M will also remain the same. Hupke and R-O-M's management team will oversee both operations from the Kansas City MO location.

The Bustin acquisition follows R-O-M's announcement in August that it had purchased the lighting systems product line from Havis Inc, adding emergency scene lighting products to the company's offerings for the fire service industry.
