DES MOINES, IA, January 5, 2012 – Moving forward in its plan for strategic growth and expansion, LeMar Industries has acquired leading material handling manufacturer Riley Equipment.

“With this move we take LeMar’s core product offerings to the next level with significant expansion benefiting customers immediately,” says Robert Martin, President. “Our partners can be confident in an enhanced experience marked by LeMar’s signature service and flexibility.”

The move expands and strengthens LeMar’s already robust product line to include bucket elevators, chain drag conveyors (horizontal, inclined, and vertical), screw conveyors, distributors and related accessories.

In addition, like LeMar and its subsidiary Hall Industries, part of Riley’s strength lies in its ability to design and fabricate custom equipment to customer needs, in addition to standard product lines. “We intend to expand on this capability and capacity immediately,” says Robert Martin.

Headquartered in Vincennes, Indiana, Riley Equipment was founded by Charles Riley in 1978 and now serves agriculture and a wide variety of industrial markets both domestic and international.
