Dometic Group realigned its Dometic Americas organization in conjunction with the integration of Atwood Mobile Products.

“The acquisition of Atwood Mobile Products has given us additional opportunities, which has enabled us to reposition the region and create a much stronger RV division. In addition, we also strengthened other key business units,” Dometic Americas president Frank Marciano said in a statement.

“The teams at Atwood Mobile Products and Dometic have worked tirelessly since the acquisition in October to create this new structure, which improves Dometic’s focus on its core businesses and creates more value for its shareholders,” Marciano said. “It has been a pleasure working with the team at Atwood Mobile Products.”

Marciano will continue to serve as president of the Americas, as well as acting business leader for the Americas Marine Division. The Americas organization will be divisionally focused as follows:
