Lund International has acquired the assets of Tradesman Truck Accessories, LLC.

Based in Winters, Texas, Tradesman is a manufacturer of aluminum and steel truck and utility boxes, as well as liquid storage tanks.  Tradesman will continue to operate in Winters with the current management team remaining in place.

“This acquisition bolsters Lund‘s existing aluminum box offering and provides us a complete category line-up by expanding our capabilities into the steel box and liquid storage tank markets,” Lund President Mitch Fogle says. “Tradesman is an excellent strategic fit for Lund and we will be able to offer our existing and new customers virtually any box or transfer tank product.”

Tradesman was founded in 1973.

“Lund‘s broad reach into the major automotive aftermarket and OEM distribution channels, along with its complementary aluminum truck box product offering, will only enhance the operations of Tradesman and present us with access to significant new outlets for growth,” Jerry McGuire, President of Tradesman, says.
