Transamerican Acquires Poison Spyder Customs
Transamerican Manufacturing Group (TMG), the largest independent manufacturer in the United States of innovative and performance aftermarket off-road accessories, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Poison Spyder Customs (PSC). Poison Spyder has proven themselves in the industry and is continuing to gain momentum in the off-road community.
CEO of Transamerican Auto Parts, Greg Adler, is very excited about the new acquisition for TMG, and the potential it provides for the growth of the brand. “I really admire what Larry McRae has done in building a predominant brand so quickly. Poison Spyder is a great fit with our brands and our customer base. We look forward to developing the full potential of what McRae and his team has already worked so diligently upon.”
Along with the brand marquee, TMG will also be embracing all PSC employees. “There is a remarkable culture within our walls, and we look forward to welcoming all Poison Spyder employees to our team,” announced Sean Angues, President of TMG. Angues elaborated on the importance of continuing Poison Spyder’s production domestically, “Poison Spyder products have always been manufactured within the United States, and we want to assure all loyal customers that this will continue to be common practice. Production within the USA is critical for the positive development of the brand as well as ensuring high-quality products that Poison Spyder customers rightly expect.”
Larry McRae, President of PSC, is equally as excited about the acquisition. “Transamerican Manufacturing Group provides unlimited opportunities for Poison Spyder to grow within the industry. Our whole team is eager to learn everything we can, and work with them to develop Poison Spyder into what we’ve envisioned since we acquired the company in 2009.”
