“We look forward to partnering with AMC, whose product offering and available capacity complement our existing aluminum and metals platform, and provide us with an opportunity to further drive synergies and add additional content per unit in the RV, industrial and marine markets,” said President Andy Nemeth. “Consistent with previous acquisitions, we will support AMC with a financial and operational foundation that will allow it to capitalize on its core competencies while preserving the entrepreneurial spirit that has been so important to its success.”

The acquisition of AMC included the acquisition of accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid expenses, and machinery and equipment, and was funded under Patrick’s existing credit facility. Patrick will continue to operate AMC on a stand-alone basis under its brand name in its existing facility.
