“We are excited to partner with Gus Feiler and the creative teams at Williamsburg, whose quality and customized seating product offerings will further enhance our presence and full solutions model in the marine and RV space,” said CEO Andy Nemeth in a statement. “In addition, these acquisitions are an excellent fit with our entrepreneurial philosophy, while providing us the opportunity to continue to better serve our customers.”

Williamsburg’s aggregate trailing 12-months revenue through October 2021 was about $41 million. Similar to previous acquisitions, Patrick will operate Williamsburg as a stand-alone business in its existing facilities.
