United States Coachworks is a quality vehicle modifier through Ford Motor Co. and a Cadillac master coachbuilder through the Cadillac Division of General Motors Corp.

"The acquisition of CTMC by Coach Industries Group positions the company to be a significant consolidator within the limousine manufacturing industry," said Paul Llobell, CTMC director.

Llobell said the industry has contracted in the last two years, from 20 quality vehicle modifier and Cadillac master coachbuilder companies to nine. He attributed the contraction to economic recession.

"We believe the industry has settled and our timing of entering this business is ideal," Llobell said. "We anticipate steady to significant cyclical growth in business stemming primarily from pent-up demand from limo service companies. We also are reviewing several vertical and horizontal opportunities, both strategic and acquisitive in nature, to complement organic growth."

Iric Cohen, publisher of Limousine Digest, the leading publication in the Limousine Manufacturing Industry, commented, 'US Coachworks, built by CTMC, is widely regarded as one of the leaders in engineering and customer service for Quality Vehicle Modifier (QVM) and Cadillac Master Coachbuilder (CMC) certified vehicles. It appears that Coach Industries Group has gotten a jump on the industry by acquiring a premiere manufacturer at a time when the market is poised for a major recovery.'
