Breyden Products Inc has purchased Saylor Products Corp of Grand Rapids, OH. Breyden manufactures a complete line of Mil spec lacing tapes and cords, tapes and overbraiding yarns used in the wire harnessing industry, and lacing tapes, cords, and ropes used in the manufacture of electrical motors and transformers. Breyden has achieved tremendous growth over the past five years, taking advantage of a strong distributor base and the acquisition of Gudebrod Inc, a competitor based in Pottstown, PA.

Breyden Products, Inc. of Columbia City, IN has purchased Saylor Products Corp of Grand Rapids, OH. Breyden manufactures a complete line of Mil spec lacing tapes and cords, tapes and overbraiding yarns used in the wire harnessing industry, and lacing tapes, cords, and ropes used in the manufacture of electrical motors and transformers. Breyden has achieved tremendous growth over the past five years, taking advantage of a strong distributor base and the acquisition of Gudebrod Inc., a competitor based in Pottstown, PA.

"Our market portfolio focuses on wire harnessing products, sales of which are driven by military and transportation expenditures, and electrical apparatus products, which are driven by housing development and capital equipment purchases," says Michael Zuber, Breyden's VP of Sales, "Our recent acquisitions have broadened our product base and have proven to be a natural fit with our existing distributors."

Founded by the three Saylor brothers in 1901, Saylor Products has a long history of innovation and success. The manufacturer started as a venture to develop a strong, versatile insulation for residential wiring, but soon expanded to meeting similar needs for a range of diverse industries, including the automotive industry.

Saylor Products is unique among manufacturers in its use of textile looms to produce a tubular material, which differs from tradition sleeving by maintaining its tubular shape when weight is applied. As materials have improved, Saylor's loomed textiles have become nearly crush-proof, providing both protection and flexibility. Customers that prefer the look and feel of the old materials will still be able to purchase products manufactured on the classic loom.

"The acquisition by Breyden will allow Saylor to improve on its foundation and take the company in a new direction," says Saylor GM Greg Westhoven, "Saylor's products and experience complement Breyden's focus on the wire harnessing industry. Our two product lines combined will allow current and future customers a fuller range of choices for their wire protection needs."

Saylor's 30,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Grand Rapids, OH will continue operation with all current employees.
