Linear Acquires Allstar
Linear LLC said it has “strengthened its position in the entry systems marketplace” with its acquisition last month of Allstar, a Downingtown, Pa.-based manufacturer of gate operators, commercial and residential garage door operators, and radio controls.
The new company’s name is AllStar Pro LLC. No terms were disclosed.
“Allstar is a very good fit and a welcome addition for us,” said Linear President Dan Stottlemyre. “Collectively, with our complementary product lines, we can offer customers an even broader range of entry system choices.”
“We are very pleased about this acquisition and look forward to the many positives made possible by a larger enterprise—manufacturing efficiencies, ongoing product improvements and customer service enhancements,” said Allstar President Robert T. Holland. “The plan is to continue to manufacture, sell and support all of the Allstar products. Customer service operations and contact channels remain the same.”
A training session for all field sales personnel was held earlier this month, said Linear. “We wanted to bring everyone together immediately, educate them about all the products, introduce some new developments, and hit the ground running, said Larry Foisie, Linear’s vice president of entry systems.
