Lippert has announced it has acquired the assets of Wolfpack Chassis, a chassis manufacturer in Kendallville, Ind., to add to its ongoing expansion of chassis production capacity. The company said that the demand for increased manufacturing capacity is “attributable in large part to the industry seeing tremendous growth in new RV buyers largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Lippert said that the acquisition of Wolfpack is set to help “immediately accommodate customer demands with the expansive resources the company will contribute.” Through the acquisition, Lippert picks up nearly 60,000 square feet of chassis manufacturing space, more than 40 additional team members, and the ability to immediately increase chassis production to meet the growing industry demand. Lippert is excited to welcome the new team members to its family and is looking forward to having the additional capacity, it said.

In addition to that acquisition, Lippert is addressing the continual increase in chassis demand by adding developments at two of its plants in Indiana. These developments include space for an additional powder coat facility and more chassis fabrication lines in Middlebury, Ind., and an additional powder coat facility at its Goshen, Ind., chassis complex, which will soon be ready for production.

“These moves are important for Lippert to meet the demands of our customers and overall industry growth,” said Ryan Smith, president of Lippert North American OEM Operations. “These strategic steps are the first of several very intentional investments we will make to support this rapid growth and to invest in the future of all the industries we serve.”

Chuck Bell, vice president of Chassis Operations, added, “As an industry leader in towable chassis, this incremental production capacity shows our commitment to meeting the demand of this very important product line for our industry. I thank our operations teams who have done an amazing job of reacting to a rapidly changing environment and are moving swiftly to meet demands on capacity and innovation.”
