Nelson Global and Tube Specialties merge businesses; two Mexican plants involved
Nelson Global Products Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of tubular and exhaust products for commercial vehicle markets and Tube Specialties Co., Inc, an industry leader of tube forming for many of the world’s largest transportation original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s), have combined their “On Highway” operations into one organization, both companies announced in a press release.
Sergio Carvalho, CEO of Nelson Global Products, said this measure “will strengthen our current manufacturing footprint by allowing us to be strategically located near our customers to provide an improved value proposition.”
Mark Weyhrich, TSCO’s president further stated “We are very excited about combining these companies together under the Nelson Global brand. It is a rare pleasure in the business world when such like-minded management teams have the ability to combine forces to enhance an entire industry for the benefit of their customers, vendors and employees.”
The newly combined company will have a broader product offering, expanded capacity, and global reach. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
