Dorman Products acquires chassis manufacturer

Dorman Products, Inc., announced Friday it has closed on the acquisition of MAS Automotive Distribution Inc. (MAS), a premium chassis parts and control arm company.

For 20 years, MAS has designed, engineered, and produced premium quality chassis, steering, suspension and alignment components for the Automotive Aftermarket throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico.  MAS, which is headquartered in Montreal, Canada, is an established leader in best-in-class product innovation, chassis development, extensive coverage and innovative cataloging.

“The acquisition of MAS reflects Dorman’s commitment to aftermarket leadership in the chassis and suspension categories. I am excited for the future opportunities presented by this new partnership as Dorman will now offer customers the most comprehensive chassis offering in today’s aftermarket. Dorman’s full-line of premium chassis and control arms will be perfectly complemented by the addition of MAS chassis and control arms coverage of premium, value and fleet full-line programs for all makes. We look forward to meeting with all MAS customers next week at AWDA and AAPEX in Las Vegas.” says Matt Barton, Dorman president and CEO.

Dorman says MAS is expected to generate approximately $40 million of net sales for the twelve months ended Dec. 30, 2017.
