Performance Inflatables Co. LLC has acquired AERÉ Marine Group.

AERÉ Marine will remain at its location in Coral Springs, Fla., to continue to service the global boating and yachting market.

AERÉ supplies inflatable fenders, fenda-sox covers and a variety of inflatable dock, mooring and platform products. 

“We are looking forward to expanding our reach in the marine inflatable product market as we join the Performance Inflatables companies,” Gary Abernathy, president and founder of AERÉ, said in a statement. “Our AERÉ team is excited about this opportunity.”

Performance Inflatables is a manufacturer and provider of marine solutions for commercial and military customers based on high performance fabric technologies, creating highly engineered inflatable products for every environment. The key operating companies of Subsalve USA and AEF have globally recognized positions including buoyancy solutions, water load testing, pneumatic lifting, agile liquid logistics solutions, and the skirts for the U.S. fleet of air cushion vehicles.

“We are thrilled to have AERÉ join the Performance Inflatables portfolio of companies,” said Richard Heath CEO of Performance Inflatables. “The businesses have complimentary capabilities but most importantly, we share a similar culture that is dedicated to customers, quality, and innovation."

The company said it will continue to invest in and grow our capabilities at its North Kingstown, R.I., Picayune, Miss., and Coral Springs, Fla., sites.
