Ride Control LLC, Gabriel brand purchased by MAT Holdings
MAT Holdings Inc. has finalized the purchase of Ride Control LLC and its Gabriel brand of shocks and struts. Ride Control had been a portfolio company of OpenGate Capital LLC since June of 2009.
"There are tremendous synergies between our businesses, and this will position our company to uniquely serve the OE and aftermarket needs of the passenger and commercial vehicle segments for years to come,” says MAT Holdings CEO Steve Wang.
In just three and a half years with OpenGate, Gabriel executives accomplished the following:
* created a stable, stand-alone company;
* re-established the respect of a historical and admired brand;
* transformed Gabriel from an underperformer to a sustainable, growing business.
“Today, we have created yet another milestone for Gabriel, ourselves, and our collective future,” says Lisa Bahash, president of Ride Control. “We are pleased with our new alliance with MAT Holdings Inc. as we join a team of companies within the same industry.”
