Jeld-Wen Holding Inc. has acquired the Kolder Group, an Australian provider of shower enclosures, closet systems, and related building products.

Established in 1992, Kolder provides supply and installation services to builders and commercial property developers in the major metropolitan markets of eastern Australia.

“The Kolder acquisition significantly enhances our existing Australian capabilities in glass shower enclosures and built-in closet systems, and supports our strategy to build leadership positions in attractive markets,” said Mark Beck, Jeld-Wen’s president and chief executive officer. “We expect to deliver synergies through operational savings from the implementation of JEM and by leveraging the combined benefits of our new Queensland glass processing facility along with Kolder’s internal glass capabilities across our manufacturing platform. We welcome the entire Kolder team to the Jeld-Wen family.”

Kolder was privately held by its founders and other minority shareholders. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
