AGS Automotive Solutions acquires BluDot Manufacturing

Dec. 9, 2022
With this acquisition, the Michigan-based company expanded their brake system portfolio to include all sizes of manufacturers of tow-able livestock trailers, cargo and utility trailers, ATV trailers, marine trailers, and over-the-road semi-trailers.

AGS Automotive Solutions, a portfolio company of 3 Rivers Capital, continued its expansion with the acquisition of BluDot Manufacturing.

AGS’ addition of BluDot follows on the heels of the company’s recent acquisitions of brake bleeder manufacturer Motive Products and manufacturer of DIY systems for tubes and hoses BrakeQuip, LLC.

“BluDot is a family-owned, second-generation success story that serves as a trusted source for the highest quality OEM brake systems for the Hydraulic Trailer industry,” said Logan Pitts, CEO of AGS. “Our acquisition of BluDot furthers AGS’ expansion into a worldwide name in aftermarket and OE braking parts and systems.”

Headquartered in South Bend, Indiana, BluDot Manufacturing provides brake systems for the OEM trailer industry, including hydraulic kits, straight air, air/hydraulic and electric/hydraulic trailer brake systems.

“The addition of BluDot Manufacturing represents an exciting follow-up to the high-profile acquisitions of Motive Products and BrakeQuip,” said Rob Carskadden, managing partner, 3 Rivers Capital. “The completion of this significant acquisition further underscores AGS Automotive Solutions’ continuing commitment to growing the company into a dominant industry supplier of quality aftermarket products from well-respected brand name manufacturers.”
