MI Windows Plans to Acquire CertainTeed Facility
In a move intended to strengthen its position in the replacement products market and expand its presence in the Midwest, MI Windows and Doors Inc. of Gratz, Pa., has entered an agreement to acquire a 210,000-square-foot CertainTeed window fabrication facility in Lebanon, Ind.
With the proposed acquisition, MI will be granted exclusive rights to fabricate CertainTeed vinyl window and patio door products for many of the primary markets throughout the Midwest. In addition to producing CertainTeed windows, the plant will be fabricating MI's line of XACT replacement windows and patio doors.
"We're seeing a lot of opportunity in the Midwest for replacement products and that makes this acquisition a key part of our growth strategy," said Matt DeSoto, MI's executive vice president of the Eastern division. "We also feel that this will be the beginning of a long and prosperous relationship between two great companies. CertainTeed has a strong reputation within our industry and they have a brand that is recognized by consumers throughout the supply chain."
