Deceuninck Expands Pultrusion Capabilities; Partners with Graham Architectural ProductsAugust 29th, 2013 by DWM Magazine
Deceuninck North America, based in Monroe, Ohio, a designer and manufacturer of systems for doors and windows, has acquired the pultrusion assets and related intellectual property of Graham Engineering, a manufacturer of blow molding machinery based in York, Pa.
According to Deceuninck, the company will simultaneously serve as the singular supplier of pultruded polyurethane window components to Graham Architectural Products (GAP) for their GTHurm® composite window and curtainwall systems. GAP is a sister company to Graham Engineering that manufactures architectural-grade doors, windows and curtainwall.
“Through the acquisition of Graham Engineering’s equipment and know-how, Deceuninck is securing its spot as a leader in this important market sector, one that has specific relevance to our current residential customers as well the commercial construction industry,” says Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “This further expands our capability to offer something our customers and their customers are seeking – products with superior strength and increased energy efficiency.”
“We are excited about the bright future we see for this technologically advanced GThurm® window and curtainwall systems and the prospect of working with a company like Deceuninck,” says Brian Hurley, president and CEO of Graham Architectural Products. “Their commitment to quality and innovation, much like our own, is a key factor in what we believe will be a very successful venture.”
Both Graham Engineering and Graham Architectural Products are part of the Graham Group, a private investment group.
Deceuninck says it now has seven manufacturing lines specifically devoted to pultrusion.
