MacNeill Pride Group, a designer and manufacturer of sporting goods and related products, has purchased Outdoor Recreation Company of America (ORCA), a supplier of premium coolers, drinkware and other outdoor accessories. Terms were not disclosed.
ORCA will continue to operate from its Nashville headquarters. Founded in 2012, its product line includes hard-sided coolers, soft-sided backpack style coolers and a full line of stainless steel drinkware. The company said it also has a range of licenses with over 80 NCAA teams, 32 NFL teams, 30 MLB teams and 30 NHL teams.
“The acquisition of ORCA is a natural addition to our company as we continue to expand into new, yet complementary, markets,” said Joe Zeller, CEO of MacNeill Pride Group. “This as an attractive opportunity to extend into the lifestyle product market where we have strong existing relationships with sporting goods retailers, both in the U.S. and abroad, that will be beneficial to increasing distribution and sales of ORCA products.”
