South Dakota-based containment system maker Shur-Co LLC is expanding its cover systems and solutions for the transportation industry with an asset acquisition of Roll-Tite.

Headquartered in Brantford, Ontario, Roll-Tite was founded in 1985 and produces industry-leading retractable tarp systems for flatbed trailers, drop deck trailers, straight trucks and specialty vehicles.

The deal is expected to close in April 2014.

Commenting on the acquisition in a statement, Terry Tennant, president of Shur-Co said, “Adding ShurTite further increases our product diversification in a direction we have been looking at for quite some time. A proven product line and team coupled with our enhanced distribution platform will allow us to serve our flatbed customers in a more complete way and positions us for additional growth in the industry,” he adds. 

Roll-Tite will continue to operate out of the Brantford, Ontario location under the brand name ShurTite and be combined with Shur-Co’s existing Flatbed Division, which provides lumber, steel and custom tarps, as well as cargo control, for truck drivers across North America.
