Shur-Co Reaches Agreement to Acquire Roll-Tite Assets

4/7/2014

Shur-Co, LLC is pleased to announce the expansion of its portfolio of cover systems and solutions for the transportation industry. Shur-Co has reached a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Roll-Tite, with the expected closing to occur in April. Headquartered in Brantford, Ontario, Roll-Tite was founded in 1985 and produces industry-leading retractable tarp systems for flatbed trailers, drop-deck trailers, straight trucks and specialty vehicles.

Roll-Tite will continue to operate out of the Brantford location under the brand name ShurTite and be combined with Shur-Co's existing flatbed division, which provides lumber, steel and custom tarps, as well as cargo control, for truck drivers across North America.

Commenting on the acquisition, Terry Tennant, president of Shur-Co, states, "Adding ShurTite further increases our product diversification in a direction we have been looking at for quite some time. A proven product line and team coupled with our enhanced distribution platform will allow us to serve our flatbed customers in a more complete way and positions us for additional growth in the industry."
