Drew industries acquires Starquest Products

Drew Industries Incorporated, a leading supplier of components for recreational vehicles (RV) and manufactured homes, has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Kinro, has acquired the business and assets of Starquest Products and its affiliate, Qualitec Manufacturing, (together Starquest).


This is the company's fourth acquisition of 2011, which together add more than $70 million in annualized sales.


Starquest has annual sales of approximately $22 million, comprised primarily of windows for truck caps, which are fiberglass enclosures that fit over the bed of pick-up trucks, painted to automotive standards and designed to exact truck bed specifications.


Starquest also manufactures windows and doors for horse trailers and buses.


Drew, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Kinro and Lippert Components, supplies a broad array of components for RVs and manufactured homes, including windows, doors, chassis, chassis parts, bath and shower units, axles, and upholstered furniture. In addition, Drew manufactures slide-out mechanisms for RVs, and trailers primarily for hauling boats.
