A Lafayette company that manufactures planners for hundreds of schools across the country has acquired one of its competitors.
School Datebooks has purchased the Denver-based company The Student Planner.
School Datebooks currently employs 65 people full-time.
President Tim Powers expects more jobs to come to the Lafayette facility in the future because of the acquisition, in the areas of sales and manufacturing.
He says the Denver facility, which has 27 full-time workers, will remain open, with Lafayette serving as the company’s headquarters.
