G.W. Anglin Manufacturing Expands Into Quebec Market

gwaCarpedia Capital is pleased to announce an expansion to the business of G.W. Anglin Manufacturing (“GWA”) following the completion of two acquisitions this year. The second and more significant of these acquisitions was concluded September 15, 2015 to cement GWA’s initial market position in the province of Quebec that was acquired April 22, 2015. Together with GWA’s existing operations, the combined business will now be the best-in-class, one-stop-shop vehicle upfitter for large commercial fleets in Ontario and Quebec. The acquisition also adds a talented entrepreneur to GWA’s management team. After an integration period, we are looking forward to additional acquisitions to further expand GWA’s national platform.

GWA is a leading upfitter in Canada for large scale, high performance commercial fleets – particularly for the complex vehicles primarily utilized by large natural gas utility, electric utility and telecommunication customers. As one of Canada’s few vertically integrated commercial vehicle upfitters, GWA designs, manufactures and installs a majority of the product it integrates into vehicles – providing customers with turn‐key work vehicle solutions. GWA is also a Tier 1 supplier of low volume, light metal fabrications incorporated into heavy equipment vehicles and a Tier 2 supplier of low volume automotive parts. Carpedia Capital completed its initial investment in GWA on November 1, 2011.
