George Risk Industries acquires Labor Saving Devices
October 10, 2017 George Risk Industries, Inc. (GRI) acquired Labor Saving
Devices, Inc. (LSDI). In announcing the transaction, Stephanie Risk-McElroy,
President and CEO of GRI, stated: “We are excited about adding the LSDI line
to the GRI family. Over the years we have looked at a variety of companies
but when Roy Bowling presented the offer to acquire, the two product lines
seemed to be a natural fit. The LSDI product line complements our existing
product line and will allow GRI to expand into other industries, including
cable, communications, etc. We are both home grown companies with a strong
commitment to quality and customer service. Mr. Bowling was an early member
of the board of directors at GRI and an industry innovator. We look forward
to expanding our product line and markets both state side and
Roy Bowling, Owner and Chairman of LSDI, added: “I am pleased and proud to hand over the 35-year legacy of Labor Saving Devices, Inc. to such a high-quality company. As a former board member, I have great respect for the history and tradition of George Risk Industries, Inc. I would not have sold my business to anyone else."
