“Alpha’s broad array of products adds scale and complements our current portfolio offering with bolt-on product line extensions,” Nemeth said. “In addition, their local footprint and well-respected sales and marketing team offer opportunities to expand our aftermarket presence as well as our platform, brand, and distribution network. Consistent with previous acquisitions, we will support Alpha with a financial and operational foundation that will allow it to continue to capitalize on its core competencies while preserving the entrepreneurial spirit and brand that have been so important to its success.”
David Smith III, CEO of Alpha, said, “The Alpha team and I are very pleased to join the Patrick family and continue the legacy of the business that my family founded over 37 years ago. We look forward to partnering with Patrick whose culture, industry expertise, and customer-centric approach are a natural fit with the core values, competencies and relationships that Alpha has built over the last four decades.”
The business will continue to operate on a stand-alone basis under the Alpha name in its existing manufacturing facilities.
