Patrick Adds Tumacs Covers

Publish date:

Patrick Industries, the Elkhart, Ind.-based supplier and manufacturer of marine and RV accessories and components, announced today that it completed its acquisition of Tumacs Covers.

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Penn., with manufacturing plants in Indiana and Pennsylvania and a distribution center in Michigan, Tumacs serves the marine industry as a supplier of custom boat covers, canvas frames and bimini tops.

The same as previous acquisitions, Patrick will operate Tumacs as a stand-alone business in its existing facilities. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

“Tumacs’ unique quick-turn prototyping and customization capabilities and extensive collection of boat cover applications exude their meticulous craftsmanship and dedication to product excellence,” said Patrick CEO Andy Nemeth in a statement.

“[Its] reputation for custom boat covers helps support Patrick’s full solutions business model in the marine OEM market and aftermarket and provides us with additional runway to further grow our position as a value-added component supplier to the marine industry.”

Tumacs was founded in 1958 and currently is led by president Bob McCall, son of cofounder Elmer “Mac” McCall.

“The Tumacs team and I are very pleased to join the Patrick family and continue the legacy of the business my family founded over 60 years ago,” said McCall. “Patrick’s emphasis on exceeding the expectations of its customers and providing a wide breadth of high-quality product offerings is in tandem with the focus on workmanship, innovation, and service we value at Tumacs to further drive brand value.”
