CHICAGO — Lund International Holding Co. has acquired Tradesman Truck Accessories LLC and is mulling additional acquisitions, the company said April 22.

Winters, Texas-based Tradesman Truck, which makes aluminum and steel truck utility boxes, as well as liquid storage tanks, will continue to operate with its current management, Lund said.

"This transaction bolsters Lund’s existing aluminum box offering and provides us a complete category lineup by expanding our capabilities into the steel box and liquid storage tank markets," Lund president Mitch Fogle said in a statement.

Buford, Ga.-based Lund, part of Dallas-based private investment firm Highlander Partners LP, continues "to evaluate other potential acquisitions" and expects more to follow, Lund chairman and Highlander managing partner Jeff L. Hull said in a statement.

The financial terms of the deal were not released.
