Thanks to several recent high-profile acquisitions, Ply Gem’s net sales rose 21 percent to $530.9 million in the third quarter of 2015. The company ‘s earnings per share of 60 cents beat analysts’ estimates of 57 cents per share.

Net sales in Ply Gem’s U.S. businesses increased $115.9 million, or 32.9 percent. In Canada, sales decreased $22.9 million, or 26.9 percent.

“While the overall Canadian housing market has softened during 2015, we continue to benefit from the sustained improvement in the U.S. housing market,” CEO Gary Robinette said. “We remain encouraged by the macro-economic trends that support the long-term recovery of the North American housing industry, and Ply Gem is well positioned to participate in the recovery.”

In the past year, Ply Gem has acquired Simonton Windows and Canyon Stone. Those drove much of the company’s sales increases.
