Eastern Metal Supply Reels in Manufacturer

Eastern Metal Supply, Lake Worth, Fla., has acquired Tigress Trading Co., Inc., and Tigress Specialty Metals Products Manufacturing, Inc., Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Tigress specializes in the manufacture and distribution of a diverse product line including rod holders, outriggers and accessories, antenna mounts, lighting, chair accessories and precision engineered sports fishing equipment.

EMS, a national distributor of aluminum extrusions and sheet products, is North America’s 42nd-largest service center company in the most recent Metal Center News Top 50. It has a long-term commitment to manufacturing and distributing marine products including anodized pads, hardware, BDA pipe, rod holders, electronic boxes and lights. The acquisition will further strengthen the company’s foothold in the saltwater sports fishing industry as it continues to bring a high-quality and diverse product line to its marine customers, claim EMS executives.

"We are very excited about the acquisition of Tigress and the opportunities it gives us to expand our rapidly growing marine markets, as well as our manufacturing capabilities for the marine industry," says Craig Lightle, co-general manager of EMS Florida.
