Lippert Components Rebrands


Lippert Components is rebranding its core businesses to Lippert, the company reported in a statement. Its parent company will remain LCI Industries.

“For the past decade, we have been on an intense journey to become more than just a single market component manufacturer,” Lippert president and CEO Jason Lippert said in the statement. “As we drive toward $3 billion in sales with a significant global presence, the time is right to fine-tune our branding strategy.”
