Dometic now owns Attwood

All,

If you are not aware of this earlier this year Dometic completed their purchase of Attwood.

As soon as some regulatory stuff is completed they will also complete their purchase of Attwood Australia.

The RV world is shrinking and the acquisitions are happening on the component side as well as the end item side.

Did you mean to say Atwood?

Atwood makes RV stuff and located in Elkhart, In,

Attwood makes marine stuff and located in Lowell Mi (near Grand Rapids, Mi).

I think they are different companies.

Or is it Attwood they bought?

Dometic makes both RV and Marine stuff, so it could have been either At(t)wood company. If it is Attwood - the marine company, then the impact to the RV industry will probably be minimal, unless you need a deck cleat for your RV.

If it is Atwood the RV company, then who knows?

Atwood the RV parts supplier:
Dometic buying Elkhart-based Atwood Mobile Products to expand RV component offerings - Elkhart Truth

Reading that article implies, perhaps, that Dometic will be using Atwood's water heater technology (perhaps the new Dometic's will also ditch the anode rod!?).

My mistake. Dometic bought Atwood Mobile Products LLC, the RV stuff folks in Elkhart In.
