Lippert Acquires Chassis Manufacturer Wolfpack
The company seeks to increase manufacturing capacity to meet increased RV demand.
Lippert Components, Inc. announced this week that it has acquired chassis manufacturer Wolfpack Chassis, LLC. Lippert made the acquisition to add to its ongoing expansion of chassis production capacity and to meet growing demands in RV sales.
Wolfpack will supply nearly 60,000 square footage of chassis manufacturing, more than 40 additional team members, and will provide Lippert the ability to immediately increase chassis production to meet the growing industry demand.
In addition to the acquisition of Wolfpack, Lippert is addressing the continual increase in demand for chassis by adding developments at two of its plants in Indiana. These developments include space for an additional powder coat facility and more chassis fabrication lines in Middlebury, Indiana, and an additional powder coat facility at its Goshen, Indiana chassis complex, which will soon be ready for production.
“These moves are important for Lippert to meet the demands of our customers and overall industry growth,” said Ryan Smith, President of Lippert North American OEM Operations. “These strategic steps are the first of several very intentional investments we will make to support this rapid growth and to invest in the future of all the industries we serve.”
Chuck Bell, Vice President of Chassis Operations, commented, “As an industry leader in towable chassis, this incremental production capacity shows our commitment to meeting the demand of this very important product line for our industry. I thank our operations teams who have done an amazing job of reacting to a rapidly changing environment and are moving swiftly to meet demands on capacity and innovation.”
