Shur-Co LLC has expanded its portfolio of cover systems and solutions for the transportation industry by reaching a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Roll-Tite, with the expected closing to occur in April.

Headquartered in Brantford, Ontario, Roll-Tite was founded in 1985 and produces retractable tarp systems for flatbed trailers, drop deck trailers, straight trucks and specialty vehicles.

Roll-Tite will continue to operate out of the Brantford, Ontario, location under the brand name ShurTite and be combined with Shur-Co’s existing Flatbed Division, which provides lumber, steel and custom tarps, as well as cargo control, for truck drivers across North America.

Said Terry Tennant, President of Shur-Co, “Adding ShurTite further increases our product diversification in a direction we have been looking at for quite some time. A proven product line and team coupled with our enhanced distribution platform will allow us to serve our flatbed customers in a more complete way and positions us for additional growth in the industry.”
