Dexter Axle’s parent company, DexKo Global, is adding a new Canadian supplier to its team. Cerka Industries in Milton, Ontario, specializes in crafting trailer axles and distributing trailer components.
Dexter CEO Adam Dexter said, “This strategic partnership supports our dedication to building an extensive network supplying high-quality products to the Canadian marketplace.”
Dexter has been operating since 1960 and employs over 3,800 people in the United States and Canada. The company has more than 20 manufacturing facilities and over 50 company-owned distribution locations.
Cerka lead shareholder Leigh-Ann Morris said, “Since 1976, my father, Peter Cerka, worked tirelessly to build Cerka Industries. It was his lifelong passion. We are pleased to pass the torch to DexKo, our trusted supplier for many years. We know DexKo is the perfect partner to continue our father’s legacy as a leader in the Canadian trailer industry.”
DexKo CEO Fred Bentley said Dexko continues to focus on growing specialty distribution and enhance its Canadian reach to service dealers and OEM customers.
Bentley said, “Bringing the knowledgeable Cerka team to Dexter was a seamless and meaningful addition to our portfolio.’
