Arrowhead Engineered Products Acquires Stens


Arrowhead Engineered Products, a leading supplier of non-discretionary, mission-critical aftermarket replacement parts for a wide variety of motorized vehicles, has acquired Stens, a distributor of aftermarket parts for outdoor power equipment. Prior to the acquisition, Stens was owned by Ariens Company. The transaction includes the acquisition of both the Stens and JThomas brands. This acquisition will help expand Arrowhead’s reach into serving customers in the outdoor power equipment market.

Stens, based in Jasper, Indiana, distributes aftermarket replacement parts to the outdoor power equipment, golf, and industrial markets. Its offerings include non-discretionary, high-wear parts, including engine components, blades, chains, belts, and electrical components for use in mowers, chainsaws, snow blowers, trimmers and other applications. The company keeps more than 14,000 parts in stock and serves more than 50,000 customers through its eight national distribution centers.

Customers of both companies will benefit from the combination, as Stens and Arrowhead share a common culture, goals, and a commitment to customer satisfaction. Together, they can offer more products and services to a larger combined customer base.
