Spradling International acquired Global Product Solutions, a division of G&T Industries. This new division will be marketed as Spradling International Marine.

Details of the acquisition were not announced.

Spradling and GPS have been partners for more than 25 years, with GPS providing marketing and distribution to the marine and recreational vehicle industries. The GPS product portfolio includes vinyls, fabrics, and toppings featuring the full range of Spradling International's standard line of upholstery vinyls, as well as custom-designed coated fabrics from Proquinal, tailored to the individual requirements of marine and RV manufacturers.

"The alliance between Spradling, Proquinal, and SIM, will not only strengthen and leverage key capabilities across the supply chain, but create a more focused, efficient, and effective solution based approach for the SIM customer," said Mark Goldstone, president of Pelham, Ala.-based Spradling International, in a statement.
