California-based Wing Inflatables has bought the assets of Patten, which manufactures inflatable lifesaving equipment from its facility in Lake Worth, Florida. Terms were not disclosed.
Patten has 62 full-time employees and sells its products worldwide. Patten’s senior management team, including CEO Fred Kaplan and COO Charles Shebanie, will remain with the company in their current roles.
In 2016, Wing acquired Henshaw Inflatables, based in the UK. Henshaw operates a manufacturing facility and administrative office in Wincanton, England and a sales office in Gothenburg, Sweden.
“I am thrilled that we have three terrific product lineups, leadership teams and technical/engineering organisations that can work together in ways never before seen in our industry,” said Andrew Branagh, CEO of Wing, in the statement.
Wing Inflatables manufactures high-performance collars for rigid inflatable boats and builds inflatable watercraft for most challenging marine environments. Wing maintains its primary manufacturing facility in Arcata, California, sales and administration office in Lafayette, California, and a sales/service office in Centerville, Maryland.
