Concord, N.C.-based Cabbarus, which manufactures custom injection molded products for the RV industry, reported $13 million in revenue in 2004.
The purchase brings Commercial Vehicle new customers and expands its capabilities in injection molding, said Mervin Dunn, Commercial Vehicle president and CEO.
The company expects Cabarrus to contribute $6 million in sales to its top line in the remainder of 2005.
