Road King Trailers, a manufacturer of aluminum and galvanized boat and PWC trailers, with two facilities located in Chandler, NC, and Ocala, NC was recently acquired by a new owner with the assistance of Viking Mergers & Acquisitions, an industry-leading middle-market business intermediary firm. The Hamm and Miller family have been working together for more than 40 years and their experience in the marine industry is shown through the success of Road King Trailers. Both families engaged with Viking Mergers & Acquisitions when they realized that it was time to sell the business and to start looking for options to ensure the legacy and success they had built could be continued for years to come.
The Hamm’s and Miller’s reached out to the experts at Viking Mergers & Acquisitions during their search. Jeff McKeehan, Managing Partner, and Larry Lawson II, President, Florida Division, worked continuously and collaboratively to successfully guide both families through the process to find the right buyer for the business. These two were able to connect with Hal Hunnicutt who is the buying party that purchased Road King Trailers in the latter part of 2020.
With Hunnicutt’s expertise, he was quickly able to recognize the strong brand recognition and healthy business model. Before the acquisition, Hunnicutt held leadership positions in business management and brand building. Hunnicutt worked directly with the members of the Viking Mergers & Acquisition (McKeehan & Lawson) team to ensure a smooth and successful transaction.
Both buying and selling groups have established a working relationship to ensure a promising transition and are both excited about the new chapters of their life. The Hamm and Miller families will shortly be able to enjoy their years of retirement while Hunnicutt is able to create an opportunity to build wealth through acquiring this established business.
