Lafayette-based company acquires competitor
A Lafayette company that manufactures planners for hundreds of schools across the country has acquired one of its competitors.
School Datebooks has purchased the Denver-based company The Student Planner.
School Datebooks currently employs 65 people full-time.
President Tim Powers expects more jobs to come to the Lafayette facility in the future because of the acquisition, in the areas of sales and manufacturing.
He says the Denver facility, which has 27 full-time workers, will remain open, with Lafayette serving as the company’s headquarters.
School Datebooks was founded in 1986.
It creates custom-calendars and online products for more than 63-hundred schools in all 50 states.
The Student Planner currently supplies similar products for an additional 45-hundred schools.
