The acquisition includes Sea-Dog’s sister company, Sea-Lect Plastics, which provides plastic injection molding, design, product development and expert tooling to companies and government agencies.

“Sea-Dog is a highly respected and established brand primarily in the marine aftermarket known for its quality, innovation, new product development, marketing, and strong customer relationships,” said Patrick president and CEO Andy Nemeth. “We are excited to partner with Brad and Mark Nysether and the entire Sea-Dog team.”

Brad Nysether, president of Sea-Dog, added: "My brother Mark and I are pleased to join the Patrick family and continue the legacy of Sea-Dog after nearly a century as family-owned businesses. We look forward to partnering with Patrick and its independent brand strategy to further broaden our geographic reach and expand our product offerings.”
