Sierra Pacific Industries Announces Intent to Acquire Hurd Windows and DoorsJuly 7th, 2014 by DWM Magazine
Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) has entered into an agreement to purchase Hurd and Superseal Windows and Doors from Longroad Asset Management LLC. This purchase will add manufacturing capacity, a skilled workforce, additional product lines, and immediate exposure to Central and Eastern U.S. and international markets for the window division of Sierra Pacific Industries, according to an announcement from Hurd Windows and Doors.
“The acquisition of Hurd Windows and Doors will significantly expand the sales and manufacturing capabilities of our Window Division as we move beyond our current footprint in the western U.S.,” says Sierra Pacific president George Emmerson. “The long term stability of Sierra Pacific Industries, its extensive forest holdings, combined with the synergy of complementary product lines and strategic positioning of manufacturing facilities, will allow us to leverage the strengths of each company,” says Emmerson. “The addition of the skilled Hurd workforce combined with our lumber and millwork manufacturing capabilities will provide a strong base for our anticipated growth,” he adds.
Sierra Pacific plans to make additional capital investments in Hurd, whose assets were acquired by Longroad in 2008, while providing even greater customer service through its dealer network. “Hurd’s customers, dealers, and employees can be assured that SPI will work with the Hurd brand to maintain its reputation for a high level of product quality and industry-leading innovation, as we expand opportunities for growth moving forward,” Emmerson says.
