Suffolk, Va.-based Amadas Coach has acquired the brands, intellectual property and manufacturing rights of Featherlite Coaches Inc., effective Dec. 17.

Amadas – a builder of luxury motorhomes, executive transporters and luxury commuter coaches – said it will continue the sales, service and warranty support of the Featherlite Coach brand through a network of authorized dealers.

Featherlite Coaches will close out production of its current inventory of new coaches at its headquarters in Sanford, Fla. Amadas will then assume production of the Featherlite Coach product line.

Amadas said Featherlite Coaches will continue as the exclusive dealer for the product in Florida, providing both sales and service.

“We are pleased to put the ample resources and tradition of innovation of the Amadas family of companies behind the Featherlite Coach brand and the loyal family of Featherlite Coach owners," said Jimmy Adams, president of Amadas Coach, noting the company has been in the business of specialty manufacturing since 1963.

Conrad Clement, CEO of Featherlite Coaches, Inc., stated: “We are very pleased to have completed this change of ownership of the Featherlite Coach brand to Amadas Coach. Their company is well positioned to ensure the continuance of the Featherlite Coach brand long term and support our customer base of over 800 coaches on the road today."
