Made in Illinois Featured Company: US Weight

Posted by Marketing Support on Mar 6, 2019 10:25:56 AM

US Weight was founded in 1996 by Larry Mitchell and Matt Buchannan who were both entrepreneurs working in Olney, Illinois. The two partners purchased some of the fitness related assets from RoadMaster Corporation which was one of the largest sporting goods companies at the time. US Weight focused initially on the fitness market since it acquired the fitness weight manufacturing technology from RoadMaster originally developed by Diversified Products (DP) in the 1960s.

DP pioneered the concept of nonferrous weight sets encased in blow-molded polyethylene which significantly broadened the reach and appeal of fitness equipment and usage in the USA. These newly designed weights did not rust, did not scuff floors, were easy to handle, and were much lower cost than traditional cast iron fitness weights.

Escalade, Inc. purchased US Weight in 2001 from Larry and Matt to further expand its sporting goods business. Escalade, founded in 1927, is publicly -traded company on the Nasdaq (ESCA) and has been a leading manufacturer of sporting goods and outdoor recreation equipment for nearly 90 years. Escalade is headquartered in Evansville, Indiana and has operations throughout North America.

US Weight has called Olney, Illinois its home since the company started in 1998. The management team and manufacturing facility are both located in Olney. With an entrepreneurial team and unique manufacturing capabilities, US Weight has grown and expanded its product range over the years. Today, the US Weights product range includes tractor wheel weights, suitcase weights, tiller weights, and canopy weights.
