Consistent with previous acquisitions, we will support Synergy with a financial and operational foundation that will allow it to capitalize on its core competencies while preserving the entrepreneurial spirit that has been so important to its success.”

Kyle Newcomer and Ben Brunner, co-founders of Synergy, said, “Patrick is a great fit for our team, operation and customers, and will be a valued resource in support of the further growth of the Synergy brand. Patrick shares the same vision of striving to provide superior service with a customer-first approach and will help us to continue to expand our business with our existing customers as well as new dealers and manufacturers.”

The acquisition of Synergy includes the acquisition of working capital and other assets. Patrick will continue to operate Synergy on a stand-alone basis under its brand name in its existing facilities and transport yards.
