Pine Country


Apr 2022



We are pleased to share the sale of our client, Pine Country, Inc., to WPW Holdings. The acquisition closed April 1, 2022.

Pine Country, Inc., located in Grand Junction, Colorado, is Colorado's premier dealer on the Western Slope with multiple lines of recreational and utility trailers, specialty vehicles and custom truck-upfitting and fabrication.

Pine Country was established in 1984 with a focus on vehicle sales and taken forward in 1989 by Ron and Nola Kissner. Mr. Kissner dramatically expanded the services and offerings of the company, evolving into one of the top multi-line trailer and specialty vehicle dealers, and upfitting/fabrication shops on the Western Slope of Colorado.

Warren P. Walcher II and Nick Horrocks of WPW Holdings partnered in the acquisition of Pine Country. Mr. Walcher was a highly successful operator of a multi-location automotive service business, while Mr. Horrocks was the long-time General Manager of Pine Country.

Their combined background includes high-level operations, marketing and management experience in the industry, and positions the Company for its next level of growth.

Generational Equity Executive Managing Director of M&A – Western Region, Stephen Crisham and his team, led by Senior M&A Advisor, Don Beezley, with support from Managing Director Mergers & Acquisitions, Chad Comroe, successfully closed the deal. Senior Managing Director Joe Van Voorhis established the initial relationship with Pine Country.

“Pine Country represented the opportunity to take an excellent operating platform with an outstanding reputation and apply operating, growth and product/service development strategies to take it to the next level as the premier operator in the Rocky Mountain region,” said Beezley.

Beezley added, “The company’s quality facilities, trained personnel and operating resources give it the ability to deliver solutions to diverse industries at the highest level of quality and dependability.”
