Satellite Industries Acquires PolyPortables

Portable sanitation industry manufacturer Satellite Industries, of Plymouth, Minnesota, has acquired PolyPortables, based in Dahlonega, Georgia. The acquisition was announced May 1 and includes the PolyPortables manufacturing plants and equipment, restroom and deodorizer products, and distribution warehouses. The management team, office, production and warehouse staff will also be retained as part of the acquisition. PolyPortables will continue to operate as a division of Satellite Industries.

“It is an honor to combine these two great companies into one,” says Todd Hilde, CEO and owner of Satellite Industries. “PolyPortables’ strong leadership and quality products make the combination of our companies something I believe will be a tremendous benefit to our customers, employees and the industry. In the end, we will develop more products and services, advance industry knowledge and provide a higher level of technical support.”

Eric Capers, president of PolyPortables, also recognizes the benefits. “Our decision to accept the purchase offer by Satellite came because of seeing the advantages to both our customers and employees,” he says. “We are going to focus on leveraging the strengths of both companies for the good of our customers.”

“Both Satellite and PolyPortables’ teams are excited to join forces,” adds John Babcock, president of Satellite Industries. “We have similar cultures and are dedicated to serving our customers, which means providing a wider variety of products, people, locations and resources.”

Information posted by the companies reassured customers that little change will occur in their working relationships with Satellite Industries and the PolyPortables division. PolyPortables will continue to manufacture, assemble, and deliver its products, while representatives for Satellite Industries and PolyPortables will sell each other’s products.

“PolyPortables customers will continue to work directly with their sales representatives and Satellite customers will continue working with their area manager with the added benefit of being able to purchase each other’s products,” Hilde says. “Any change going forward will focus on how it benefits our customers and employees. Both companies have a long history of customer and employee longevity, and we expect this new company will only strengthen those relationships.” 

According to the company, Satellite Industries approached the PolyPortables equity partnership owners in November 2017 about purchasing the company, and the sale was finalized April 30.
