Hurd Windows & Doors Acquires SuperSealJanuary 7th, 2011 by DWM Magazine
Hurd Windows and Doors announced today that it has acquired SuperSeal Manufacturing Co. Inc., a 50-year old, privately-held, high-end vinyl window manufacturer based in South Plainfield, N.J. HWD Acquisition Inc., the name under which Hurd now markets its products and brand, is headquartered in Medford, Wis., and is known for its custom wood windows and doors.
According to Hurd president and chief executive officer Dominic Truniger, the acquisition supports Hurd’s strategic growth plan to expand its diverse product mix to address the shifting needs of a broad range of construction markets – with emphasis on the replacement window market, as well as new residential and light commercial.
“With SuperSeal’s high-end line of vinyl windows, Hurd is uniquely positioned in the marketplace,” says Truniger. “SuperSeal mirrors many of Hurd’s core business principles and brand attributes. Like Hurd, they’ve built their brand on giving customers more.”
Truniger adds, “Since Hurd already has experience in the manufacturing, marketing and sale of vinyl windows and doors, we are confident that this will be a smooth and successful transition.”
Ron Vespa, who was a SuperSeal co-owner, will continue serving as vice president of the company.
“SuperSeal has been a family-owned business for 50 years,” says Vespa. “We had to be confident that the team with whom we joined forces would allow us to continue to build upon our great brand, while realizing supplier synergies, expanding our distribution network and sharing forward-thinking engineering practices to manufacture the energy-efficient windows for tomorrow. We have found that with Hurd.”
SuperSeal will be an independent subsidiary business of HWD Acquisition. Its products will continue to be marketed under the SuperSeal brand and through its existing distribution channels, along with Hurd’s eastern distribution infrastructure.
