Lippert acquires Marine Trailer Performance

Marine Trailer Performance

Aug 21, 2023

LCI Industries (NYSE: LCII) through its wholly owned subsidiary, Lippert Components, Inc. ( Lippert™), a supplier of a broad array of highly engineered components for the leading original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) in the recreation and transportation product markets and the related aftermarkets of those industries, today announced that its subsidiary, Kinro Texas, Inc., has acquired substantially all of the business assets of Marine Trailer Performance (“MTP”), a marine axle manufacturer located in Houston, TX. MTP also specializes in axle lubrication systems, hydraulic brake actuators and performance disc brakes for boat trailers. The acquisition of MTP closed in May 2023.

This strategic move significantly rounds out Lippert’s axle portfolio, allowing it to provide innovative marinized axle solutions to a myriad of OEMs who manufacture both boats and boat trailers, as well as aftermarket dealers and distributors. MTP will help Lippert capitalize on a notably underserved part of the market, utilizing Lippert’s coast-to-coast axle manufacturing and warehousing capabilities to provide the best product and service possible.


“We are excited about the acquisition of Marine Trailer Performance,” said Nick Lenzi, Founder, President and CEO of MTP, now Vice President of Marine Axle Sales at Lippert. “Lippert’s expertise and extensive experience in the axle industry will undoubtedly supercharge MTP’s growth trajectory, empowering us to explore new horizons and expand our operations to unprecedented levels. As we move forward, we do so with unwavering enthusiasm, a shared vision and an unyielding determination to lead the industry into uncharted territories.”

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists.

This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
