Dehco Inc., parent company of TriStar Distributing and Cast Products, suppliers of RV, marine, spa and manufactured housing parts, launched a new division called Recreation Nation.

Based at Dehco’s Eugene, Ore., branch, Recreation Nation provides aftermarket dealers and customers in those markets with parts, equipment and accessories previously available only to OEMs.

Dehco brought in April Klein, formerly vice president of customer support services at Monaco RV, to help steer Recreation Nation.

“Having the freedom to structure existing resources to specifically suit dealer needs is exciting and will secure our success,” Klein said in a statement. “I think dealers will appreciate the ability to have direct access to the information and parts that Dehco companies have been supplying to the industry for years. This isn’t a startup venture; this is an established company doing what it does best.”

Recreation Nation’s products include everything its sister companies provide, as well as new products selected especially for the retail market, the company said. With distribution points in Indiana, Oregon, and Pennsylvania, Dehco stocks thousands of parts.

Additionally, Dehco has manufacturing facilities that produce products such as butyl tapes, adhesives, molded showers, tubs and sinks.
