AVON, CONNECTICUT, December 13, 2021 – Ironwood Capital portfolio company ALCOM, LLC (“ALCOM”) has acquired Triton Trailers, LLC (“Triton”). ALCOM is the leading manufacturer of aluminum trailers, including cargo haulers, car haulers, snow trailers, flat/open carriers and horse/livestock trailers.
Headquartered in Hartford, Wisconsin, Triton is the market leader in aluminum personal watercraft trailer production and ranks second in overall aluminum trailer sales of all types. Founded in 1975, Triton boasts more than 40 years of trailer manufacturing experience across a variety of recreational and utility market segments that include open and enclosed snowmobile, ATV/UTV, PWC, cargo and motorcycle towing solutions. Having pioneered the personal watercraft trailer category over the last decade, Triton commands an extensive geographic footprint with dealers across the United States, Canada, and select international markets.
Ironwood Capital Partner Alex Levental stated, “Our original investment in ALCOM was driven by, among other factors, the opportunity for rapid growth due to geographic expansion. Execution to date includes the newly-opened 130,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Deland, Florida, with plans to open additional facilities. The purchase of Triton further extends geographic reach into the Midwest and adds a whole new product line through Triton’s industry leading PWC towing solution. Existing dealers have an even deeper product offering from ALCOM, and ALCOM gains additional dealers in new geographies.”
“Triton has always been admired from afar and has been a strong competitor. As a leading brand name and fellow industry frontrunner, we are excited to build upon Triton’s reputation of quality and innovation,” said ALCOM CEO Trapper Clark.
