Lippert Components Buys Smoker Craft’s Marine Furniture Operation

08-Dec-2018

In a long-term agreement, Smoker Craft has sold its marine furniture manufacturing operation to Lippert Components. The outsourcing means Lippert will sell upholstery and seating products to Smoker Craft so the latter company can focus on building boats.

“This is an exciting day for Smoker Craft, Inc. We feel very comfortable with the Lippert team and believe the cultures at Lippert and Smoker Craft are an ideal fit,” says Doug Smoker, president and CEO of Smoker Craft, Inc. “We have worked closely with Lippert to ensure that employee seniority is retained in the ownership transition and that employee benefits align with what our employees enjoyed at Smoker Craft, Inc.”

Operations will still take place from Smoker Crafts’ Paris complex. For more information, visit boatingindustry.com/news/2018/11/30/smoker-craft-sells-marine-furniture-operation-to-lippert-components.
