BRISTOL, Ind. — Earthway Products Inc., manufacturer of the EV-N-SPRED and Flex-Select line of spreaders, has purchased the PSB Spreader Division of White Castle, Columbus, Ohio, and its Prizelawn brand. PSB Spreader manufactures Prizelawn Bigfoot, CBR, Mid-Pro and Littlefoot spreaders.
Commenting on the acquisition, Lon Mast, president of Earthway Products, said, “As we welcome the Prizelawn brand into the Earthway family, we believe that their expertise and efficiency in commercial and professional spreader production will be a great complement to our own manufacturing capabilities and existing spreader lines. PSB’S high-quality standards and respect for their employees and dealers mirrored ours, making this a good fit with our existing culture.”
Earthway will begin designing, engineering, manufacturing and distributing Prizelawn spreaders in a few weeks as the PSB Spreader Division wraps up production and shipping. It is expected that PSB will begin to ship inventory to Earthway’s 200,000 square-foot facility in Bristol, Indiana, on July 20th, finishing by the end of July. The PSB Spreader Division’s prior dealer network will still market the Prizelawn brand for Earthway, ensuring that consumers can continue to rely on the distribution network they have trusted for years.
