ERLANGER, Ky. –Ancra International has announced it has acquired S-Line Cargo Control and Safety Products.
“We see tremendous value in bringing our two thriving companies together,” said Steve Frediani, president of Ancra. “Customers of both organizations will benefit from an expanded line of innovative products and services that are quite literally second to none, providing opportunities for significant growth in all markets.”
S-Line, based in Dallas, Texas, has two facilities in the state encompassing more than 150,000 sq.-ft. The company provides unique custom fabrication and service offerings, according to Ancra.
“Like Ancra, S-Line has built a reputation for innovation,” said Ralph Abato, director of sales and marketing for Ancra. “With a line-up of nearly 100 products and complementary commercial and consumer-based distribution channels, S-Line provides access to new markets for Ancra’s product lines that only add to the momentum we have been creating in the marketplace.”
Abato said Ancra will leverage the acquisition to expand its presence in the commercial trucking sector, specifically the medium-and light-duty vocational trucking segments, where S-Line is already a significant player.
“We’ve built some extremely successful markets over the years by keeping our focus on the customer, staying flexible and developing creative solutions,” said S-Line founder, Jerry Squyres. “We look forward to adding value to the Ancra organization and to putting our combined talents and resources to work for S-Line’s loyal customers as well as Ancra’s.” •
