Rice Lake, WI (PRWEB) October 1, 2009
Rice Lake Weighing Systems announces its purchase of the FlexWeigh Division of Enduro Systems, located in Santa Rosa, CA. Since 1978 FlexWeigh has been a premier manufacturer of electronic scale equipment and custom weighing solutions with a reputation for outstanding quality and service. Rice Lake and FlexWeigh have enjoyed a positive working relationship for more than fifteen years. Because of a strong working relationship and parallel business philosophies, the transition is expected to be seamless.
With this acquisition, Rice Lake Weighing Systems expands an already world-class selection of weighing products and custom weighing solutions. Over the next several months, manufacturing operations will be transferred to Rice Lake's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and headquarters in Rice Lake, WI. Mark Patty, General Manager of FlexWeigh, will be retained as an employee of Rice Lake and serve as a Director of Strategic Accounts/Systems Products. Management anticipates adding about five additional jobs at the Rice Lake facility over the next few months.
Questions regarding this acquisition can be directed to management representatives Mark Johnson Jr. or Steve Parkman. Rice Lake is committed to making this change as transparent as possible for all FlexWeigh customers.
