Orange City, Iowa -- EZ Liner, a manufacturer of pavement striping equipment, has acquired Arrow Striping & Manufacturing, another manufacturer of performance-engineered pavement marking, surface prep and removal equipment.
The official announcement was made in Orange City, Iowa, and Billings, Montana on Wednesday, Feb. 1. The market continues to desire more long-lasting and durable road markings for the safety of those driving and with increased use of driver-assisted vehicle technology. Road worker safety is also significantly improved by reducing the number of times a road surface requires striping or restriping. The move to acquire Arrow Striping & Manufacturing first started as EZ Liner looked to expand to a more complete line of reliable, cost-effective, and easy-to-maintain equipment and become a one-stop supplier for customers needing a broader mix of products.
“Steve and Kymm Stark and Mark and Natalie Heinzeroth, like us, built the company where the rubber meets the pavement, striping on highways and roads. We are thrilled to mark a new era of providing road striping and maintenance equipment that will provide a unique blend of responsive service with rugged, road-tested equipment that allows customers an industry-leading value,” says Steve Roesner, president of EZ Liner. “Combining the oldest continuously operating equipment manufacturer in EZ Liner with Arrow’s foundations of old-fashioned ingenuity, robustness, and advanced technology, we believe, will make it easy for the industry and stripers throughout North America.”
The acquisition of Arrow Striping & Manufacturing fits into EZ Liner’s strategy to offer a full line of equipment for pavement marking, surface preparation and removal, along with parts, service, used equipment, and training.
This partnership will enable EZ Liner to continue to support its mission of providing public safety equipment, materials, and service to make life easier. They are dedicated to providing world-class service, integrity, and reliability throughout the lifetime of their products. Together, they look forward to serving all current and new customers as they join forces to incorporate the best features of both companies and product lines.
