ODL Acquires Viewlite International Ltd.

ODL Inc. of Zeeland, Mich., has recently announced that it completed the acquisition of Bootle, England-based Viewlite International Ltd. on January 7, 2005. ODL manufactures door lite units and products designed to increase the value of a home.

"The agreement provides ODL the means to strengthen our manufacturing, sales and distribution in the United Kingdom and Europe," said Paul Meeuwsen, senior vice president, ODL.

According to Meeuwsen, ODL's current distribution center in Skelmersdale, England, will be merged in the Bootle location later in 2005 in an effort to further streamline ODL's United Kingdom distribution process.

Viewlite, which was founded in 1994, offers a wide range of engineered resin cassettes.

"With the use of steel and fiberglass doors in the United Kingdom expanding tremendously in the past three years, Viewlite has grown to become the market leader in door lite frame sales in the United Kingdom, says Alan Cook, managing director, Viewlite.

Cook will lead the new ODL/Viewlite Ltd. company, and says the acquisition will not affect Viewlite's employees.
