Flagg Family Adds Wheels Manufacturing to its Bicycle Holdings in Boulder Area
New President Dan Taggart signals excitement for growth
Louisville, CO. (March 1, 2019) – Wheels Manufacturing announced today that it has been acquired by the Flagg family. Dan Taggart will serve as President of the Colorado-based manufacturer and supplier of premium service and repair parts, including bicycle derailleur hangers, bottom brackets, and specialty tools.
The acquisition will provide Wheels Manufacturing with important strategic investments in equipment and inventory needed for future growth. The company will continue to independently serve specialty bike retailers. Former owners Dave and Cindy Batka will be supporting the transition over the next several months.
“Cindy and I have known for some time that Wheels Manufacturing needed additional resources in order to grow and enhance service to its customers,” said founder, Dave Batka. “As we looked to the future for the company, we saw a great opportunity through this new ownership to expand a great product line while preserving our valued workforce and exceptional customers. Cindy and I guided Wheels Manufacturing for its first three decades. Dan Taggart and the Flagg family are the ideal partners to grow the company for the decades to come.”
Taggart is no stranger to biking and business management. A lifelong outdoors recreationist and biking enthusiast, Taggart spent the past decade successfully leading teams and managing key accounts in the IT industry.
“Wheels Manufacturing is renowned as an innovative manufacturer and supplier that’s dedicated to specialty retailers,” said Dan Taggart. “I am thrilled to lead this team and serve our customers.
