Ancra International has announced the acquisition of S-Line Cargo Control and Safety Products

Ancra International has announced the acquisition of S-Line Cargo Control and Safety Products. S-Line, which will operate as a wholly owned division of Ancra International, supplies cargo control products for flat bed trailers, van trailers and the motor sports industry.

“A broader range of products means greater customer choice,” said Ralph Abato, director of sales& marketing for Ancra. “We fully expect to grow our business with existing customers, particularly heavy-duty trucking fleets. At the same time, this acquisition will generate meaningful growth in new markets, such as medium and light-duty vocational vehicle fleets, where S-Line has developed a significant foothold.”

Ancra’s acquisition also includes all other divisions of J.P.S. Corp., including its metal fabricating operations. S-Line’s Texas-based facilities will now also provide warehousing capabilities for Ancra’s Southwest customer base, Ancra said.
