December 8th, 2021 by Tara Taffera

American Pacific Group (“APG”), a San Francisco Bay Area-based private equity firm, announced today that it has acquired Interwest Distribution Company, distributor of automotive and building films. Interwest will come together with Fellers, Inc. as an American Pacific Group portfolio company.

Interwest, a Denver-based company, is a regional distributor of films for automotive shops and commercial and residential buildings. Founded in 1982, Interwest has been a leading supplier of 3M-brand films to the western United States. Interwest distributes paint-protection film, car wraps, and window tint to its automotive customers and sun control, security, and decorative films to its architectural customers.

“We have been on a great growth trajectory for the past several years,” says Hugh Bernardi Jr., Owner of Interwest. “We have been aware and impressed by Fellers for a long time, and as the vinyl wrap and window film markets start to converge within the auto segment, we couldn’t imagine a better partner as we enter our next level of growth. We look forward to bringing our businesses together, working closely with APG, and building something great from which all of our vendors and customers can benefit.”

“Both Fellers and Interwest are highly respected distributors in the industry,” adds Fraser Preston, managing partner at APG. “We saw a real opportunity to bring these two great companies together to create a unique platform that is well-positioned in the marketplace. We were further energized when we saw the cultural fit and similar goal mindset among the respective management teams. We look forward to the road ahead and supporting the combined business with the resources it needs to achieve those mutual goals.”
