Lippert and Euramax for Mobility form joint venture: Amerimax for Mobility

 LCI Industries, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Lippert Components, Inc. (“Lippert”), has announced that its subsidiary, Lippert Components Manufacturing, Inc., is entering into a strategic alliance with Euramax for Mobility, the largest European supplier of aluminum products for recreational and transportation vehicles, through its affiliate, Amax Mobility, LLC, to form a new joint venture: Amerimax for Mobility.  

With over 50 years of experience in partnering and supplying custom aluminum sidewalls and panels to the recreational and transportation OEM markets, Lippert and Euramax are combining efforts to provide one of the most diverse product catalogues, including a wide range of new products, as well as industry-leading customer service, for the recreational vehicle and transportation OEM markets. The combined product lines of Amerimax for Mobility will offer a complimentary range of products from traditional metal fabricated panels, prepainted aluminum sheets and coils with a width up to 103 inches, to high-strength premium laminates, as well as fiberglass reinforced polyester panels.  

The new joint venture combines Lippert’s deeply rooted North American RV industry relationships with Euramax for Mobility’s extensive manufacturing expertise. Amerimax for Mobility’s North American OEM customer base can expect immediate manufacturing and supply chain advantages, most notably an increase in manufacturing capacity and product availability that will bring customer experience and service to all new levels. Amerimax for Mobility has also strategically expanded the geographic footprint of its service locations to provide world-class customer service at three locations in Elkhart County, Indiana, as well as single locations in Mansfield, Texas; Stayton, Oregon; and Perris Valley, California.  

Ryan Smith, Group President for Lippert’s North American OEM Businesses, commented, “I am extremely excited to partner with Euramax for Mobility to create this incredible company that brings extensive experience and innovation to our recreational and transportation vehicle platforms. The specialties of both teams complement each other perfectly, and I have no doubt that we have created a world class manufacturing organization that will offer industry leading product, innovation and customer service.” 

Harmen Kruijt, CEO of Euramax for Mobility, commented, “As Europe’s largest supplier, providing over £35 million of painted aluminum to the recreational and transportation OEM markets, we are committed to supporting Amerimax for Mobility with product innovation, while building close relationships with new and existing customers in North America.” Kruijt continued, “Having more than 50 years of manufacturing experience and an annual metal processing capability exceeding 35 million pounds, we are poised to build lasting relationships with customers, suppliers, and our own team members for many years to come.”
