They will be focusing on innovative and tailored products for RVs and on providing service and support to customers. The companies say they share the philosophy of customer first. The partnership coincides with an upgrade of Pletcher´s showroom.

“With the addition of our new two-story showroom, we wanted to create a space for our customers to get creative and think outside the box,” says Brian Pletcher of Pletcher sales. “Adding Spradling's product mix to the showroom will enhance that experience.”

Both companies say they recognize the importance of speed to market and strength in design, and they are ready for the challenge.

“We are always looking for new opportunities in existing and new markets, and in Pletcher we saw an aggressive sales, service and design group looking to grow their business,” says Spradling’s Terry Mead.
