Jeff Novotny, President of Larson International, Inc. is proud to announce that it has purchased Sellner Manufacturing of Faribault,  Minn. The deal was completed on Jan. 18 for an undisclosed sum.

Except the building, Larson acquired everything from the Minnesota factory including ride plans, molds, computers, office furniture, equipment and machines, etc.

Sellner Manufacturing was founded by Herbert Sellner in 1923. Though the company produced a number of rides and attractions, it garnered world-wide attention with the introduction of the Tilt-a-Whirl in 1926. More than 900 units were produced during its 88-year history.


Larson also acquired the Sellner name and plans to keep it on the Sellner products. "We are very excited about this," Novotny said. "It gives us wonderful opportunities. Out of respect for the long history of this company and the family, and because of wide industry recognition of the Sellner product, I intend to keep and use the Sellner name."

Novotny plans to exhibit at the International Independent Showmen Association's trade show in Gibsonton, Fla. on Feb. 8-12.

"We'll put up some Larson stuff and some Sellner stuff," he said. "I won't really be there to sell, but to communicate, to help everyone   understand what this deal is all about."

Larson would like to stress the fact that ALL Sellner equipment and parts can now be ordered directly through Larson's spare part's division in the Plainview, Texas office.
