The Aeromotive Group and Roadster Shop have announced that the organizations have merged to create a new automotive aftermarket powerhouse. Now operating as Roadster Shop, the combined brands will drive the development of innovative products, services and content.
“As a lifelong enthusiast, I’m thrilled to announce this partnership between The Aeromotive Group and Roadster Shop,” said Laurent Potdevin, CEO of The Aeromotive Group, now known as Roadster Shop. “As a result of this alliance, Roadster Shop can leverage The Aeromotive Group’s portfolio of brands, its operational foundation, and access to new levels of capital for expansion.”
Roadster Shop is a custom vehicle and chassis manufacturer in Mundelein, Illinois. Founded in the 1980s, the shop’s primary focus was building chassis for prewar Fords, along with a handful of complete street rod builds before Jeremy Gerber, Phil Gerber and their father, Neal Gerber, purchased the company in 2004. Under their vision, the business now engineers and sells custom chassis and suspensions found under some of the top hot rods in the country.
“Our partnership with The Aeromotive Group gives us the opportunity to fuel accelerated growth and supercharge our expansion,” said Jeremy Gerber, co-owner of Roadster Shop. “Over the past 20 years, we’ve become a household name in high-performance hot rods, muscle cars and trucks. Phil and I are very excited about the future here at Roadster Shop.”
Roadster Shop has two facilities with full chassis production, metal fabrication and vehicle construction, along with a paint and body department.
