Lippert Components, following the acquisition of Fort Wayne, Ind.-based Signature Seating in August, now makes and supplies furniture for freshwater boatbuilders, primarily pontoon boat manufacturers.
Lippert Components now also supplies Furrion electronics to boatbuilders and the marine aftermarket.
"LCI is the leading provider of furniture solutions for the towable RV industry and the addition of Signature and its experienced team provides immediate access to the pontoon boat market,” Lippert Components president Scott Mereness said in a statement. “Freshwater boats, and in particular pontoon boats, are a natural extension of our collection of premium RV furniture."
Lippert Components has 42 manufacturing facilities in the United States and Canada and is a subsidiary of Drew Industries Inc., a publicly traded company that supplies components for RV manufacturers and manufactured homes.
To a lesser extent, Lippert Components supplies components for adjacent industries, including buses; trailers used to haul boats, livestock, equipment and other cargo; pontoon boats; modular housing; and factory-built mobile office units.
