“In 2019, we significantly advanced LCI's diversification through seven strategic acquisitions by investing nearly $450 million, including our largest acquisition to date, CURT Group, which effectively doubled the size of our aftermarket business and accelerated our path to becoming a dominant leader in the space,” said LCI CEO Jason Lippert in a statement.

Lippert added that in 2020, the company is “maintaining our focus on delivering new, innovative products, leveraging our core competencies in adjacent markets, driving operational efficiencies, and realizing synergies from these recent acquisitions.”
