Quanex Building Products Corp. has completed the acquisition of the assets of Alumco Inc. and its subsidiaries.
The assets include Aluminite, a screen producer for the door and window industry, which Quanex says will allow it to extend its product offering and better serve its customers.
Alumco is headquartered in Chehalis, Washington, and has nine manufacturing facilities located throughout the US, manufacturing and marketing window and patio door screens to OEMs. The new business will become part of Quanex’s Engineered Products Group.
“The acquisition allows us to expand our presence in the fenestration segment,” says David Petratis, chairman, president and CEO of Quanex. “Quanex currently manufactures window screens for wood window manufacturers. This acquisition creates the opportunity to become a leading window and door screen producer in North America, allowing us to extend our product offering and geographic footprint. Doing so will enable Quanex to further support North American window OEMs.”
