Alpin Haus acquires Garick RV
Alpin Haus, an outdoor recreation powerhouse in New York, announced the acquisition of Garick RV in Oak Ridge, NJ.
Alpin Haus, started as a small family-owned business in 1964, is one of the leading outdoor recreational retailers in the northeast and employs over 200 people across five locations. They feature a full line of RVs, snowmobiles, skis, boats, pools, and spas.
With the acquisition of Garick RV, Alpin Haus now has six locations and its first location outside the state of New York.
Garick RV’s founder, Gary Threlfall said, “I’m excited to find a buyer like Alpin Haus that shares the same core values which I founded Garick RV on over 35 year ago. I’m confident Garick’s customers and employees are in good hands with Alpin Haus.”
Founded in the spring of 1983 by two high school friends as a RV rental company, Garick RV bloomed into a dealership with a sales center and a 10-bay service center employing over 20 people.
“Garick RV has an outstanding reputation, and this acquisition provides an additional platform to offer Alpin Haus’ services and products,” said Andy Heck, President of Alpin Haus.
“Our companies’ core foundations of providing outstanding customer service align exceptionally well,” Heck said. “We are excited to grow beyond our state borders and we look forward to serving this expanded market for years to come.”
