ELKHART, IN — “Patrick Industries Inc. has completed the $53 million acquisition of Dehco Inc., headquartered in Elkhart, a distributor and manufacturer of parts and accessories for the recreational vehicle, manufactured housing and marine market,” reports Goshen News.

Patrick Industries says that Dehco operates one manufacturing facility in Indiana and four distribution centers in Indiana, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Alabama. Dehco’s 2017 revenues were approximately $88 million.

Dehco’s complementary product lines align with our existing RV product portfolio and provide us with an opportunity to leverage our existing manufacturing and distribution platforms and nationwide geographic footprint to further increase our RV content per unit and product offerings in the primary markets we serve,” said Todd Cleveland, chief executive officer of Patrick.

This acquisition is well-aligned with our strategic initiatives and capital allocation strategy and we look forward to working with the Dehco team to help further drive brand value,” said Andy Nemeth, president of Patrick Industries. “Consistent with previous acquisitions, we will support Dehco with a financial and operational foundation that will allow it to capitalize on its core competencies while preserving the entrepreneurial spirit that has been so important to its success.”

Patrick will continue to operate Dehco on a stand-alone basis under its brand name in its existing facilities.

Patrick Industries Inc. is manufacturer of component products and a distributor of building products serving the recreational vehicle, manufactured housing, marine, kitchen cabinet, office and household furniture, fixtures and commercial furnishings, and other industrial markets.  Their closing numbers today are part of our Bloomberg ticker, further below.
