Taylor Made Products, a division of the Taylor Made Group, acquired the D-Icer product line from Pyramid Technologies Industrial of Meriden, Conn.

A purchase price was not disclosed.

The manufacturing and distribution of the product line has been moved to Gloversville, N.Y. and is immediately available as part of the Taylor Made Products line of marine accessories.

The D-Icer is a submersible, motor-driven water circulation unit developed to prevent ice from forming around docks and pilings during harsh winter months by continuously propelling warmer subsurface water to the surface.

“This was a terrific acquisition for Taylor Made Products,” said Jason Pajonk, president of Taylor Made Products, in a statement. “We have strategically expanded our offering of dock products significantly over the past five years with the acquisition of Perimeter Industries and the introduction of numerous other products including vinyl and rubber dock edging, fiberglass dock boxes, carts, piling caps and dock bumpers. This was a natural fit.”

The Taylor Made Group has 100 years experience in the recreational marine industry. It operates 14 plants in the United States, the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico.
