December 22, 2016 - Caster Concepts, a manufacturer of heavy-duty industrial casters and wheels, announces the acquisition of Mitchell Golf Equipment Company, a producer of professional club performance tools, repair equipment and supplies.
Caster Concepts relocated production of all Mitchell Golf products from Dayton, Ohio, to its headquarters in Albion. Three of Mitchell's five employees have relocated to Michigan. Caster Concepts plans to hire an additional three employees to oversee production and sales.
The acquisition of Mitchell Golf Equipment fits into Caster Concepts' plans for growth and expansion. Over the past five years, Caster Concepts has acquired four companies, expanding its manufacturing capabilities, growing its employee base and broadening its market nationally and internationally. Apart from Mitchell Golf Equipment, Caster Concepts has acquired Larcaster/Owl Welding Co.; Modern Suspension Systems, and Albion Machine and Tool.
For Mitchell Golf Equipment, the acquisition ends the search for a partner that would continue the company's manufacturing expertise and deliver high-quality products customers have been accustomed to for 29 years.
