DECKED / CargoGlide Merger

The acquisition of CargoGlide will allow the end-user to run both the DECKED and CargoGlide systems simultaneously without sacrificing the performance of either.

DECKED will be applying their approach to CargoGlide’s products. The CargoGlide line will be fully integrated with DECKED’s own Drawer System and Tool Box products to create the next building block in DECKED’s growing offering of truck bed storage and organization systems and will be eventually offered for direct to consumer sale on their website and at dealers. This new partnership will create a comprehensive portfolio of innovative truck bed accessory solutions, well-positioned to meet a variety of customer needs across this growing market.

“We are very excited to bring CargoGlide into the DECKED family,” said DECKED GM, Jake Peters. “It’s a natural acquisition as its ergonomic focus is a great complement to DECKED. We believe that by adding DECKED’s manufacturing, engineering, and design knowledge, as well as marketing and sales infrastructure, we can take CargoGlide to the next level.”
