Burnaby, BC – Mustang Survival ® , the North American brand known for innovative solutions for the most demanding marine environments, is excited to announce its merger with California based WING Group, a leading manufacturer of inflatable sponsons, small combat craft, whitewater rafting solutions, life rafts, and marine doors and windows.
Commenting on the announcement, Mustang Survival General Manager Jason Leggatt says, “Joining with The WING Group lands Mustang Survival in a home totally focused on the marine and aviation industry and its users. We can already see tremendous synergies in our technology and operational capabilities that will enable the combined group to take the market by storm. It’s incredibly exciting times for our brand which has already been forging out a dramatic growth trajectory”.
The WING Group, led by President and CEO Andrew Branagh has been expanding its core product offering and reach with acquisitions aligned to the “quality solutions” mission, and Mustang Survival represents an opportunity to engage directly with WING’s end consumers in terms of personal protective and performance equipment on the water.
“Mustang Survival has a rich history and authentic brand story that resonates with us and our consumers”, says Branagh. “They are recognized as the leader in their field and deliver confidence to users in the harshest marine environments in the world. This merger presents a unique and strategic growth opportunity for both sides, especially as we aim to deepen our suite of marine and over-water aviation products here in North America and around the world.”
Mustang Survival General Manager Jason Leggatt will be promoted to President of Mustang Survival, and continue in his role of building a full-scale waterlife brand that enables the ultimate experience on the water, whether for work, duty, or to escape the daily grind.
