Meyer-Distributing-logo-193x145Jasper, Ind.-based Meyer Distributing announced the acquisition of the U.S. operations of 5 Seasons RV Distribution in Portland, Ore., according to a report in the Jasper Herald.

“With the recent consolidation activity in the RV parts distribution business, it’s not surprising we have received an enormous amount of requests from both RV customers and suppliers to add additional product lines to this category and quickly,” says Bruce Terwiske, director of purchasing for Meyer. “We are the best avenue to keep competition in the marketplace so customers continue receiving great products at a great price. The vast majority of RV dealers already buy a good deal of product from us on crossover items so we are excited to now supply them with more traditional RV parts and continue to serve their needs well.”

“5 Seasons will be a great fit for us,” states Jeff Braun, CFO of Meyer added. “It gives us an additional presence in the RV parts distribution business and rounds out our nationwide logistical map. We will soon add a fleet of vehicles to deliver auto and RV parts, furniture, and our 3PL clients’ goods throughout the northwest and bring this last region of the U.S. mainland our family oriented business touch.

“We see the Northwest much like the Midwest region where independent proprietors enjoy doing business with family owned and operated companies. We will have 5 Seasons RV integrated in a few days, and then we’ll add additional infrastructure to connect all Meyer inventory in short order while dramatically increasing local stock in Portland. We continue to look for acquisitions and partners in the Northwest region to strengthen our presence.”
