ELKHART -

Ohio-based Next Sparc LLC has acquired a majority interest in a recreational vehicle product manufacturer and supplier based in Elkhart. Financial details of the deal with Way Interglobal Network LLC were not disclosed.

Way Interglobal develops, manufactures and sources a variety of products and accessories, including refrigerators, fireplaces, and audio and entertainment systems for RVs. In addition to its offices in Elkhart, the company also has a presence in China. 

"Way has demonstrated an unparalleled ability to develop and deliver innovative products and provide service to the OEM market the larger OE suppliers can’t match," says Len Pagon, chief executive officer of Next Sparc. "We have already established a new, expanded banking relationship and working capital line to support their innovation capabilities and support future growth. Next Sparc is excited, and we see significant opportunity, to partner with (Way CEO Wayne) Kaylor and a very seasoned Way leadership team continue growth through innovation and build a scalable, world class infrastructure."

Next Sparc did not specify if any jobs would be affected by the acquisition.
