GED Acquires NorfieldFebruary 18th, 2021 by Editor
GED Integrated Solutions Inc. (GED), a portfolio company of The Beekman Group, has acquired Norfield Inc. (Norfield), a California-based automation equipment, parts, and services provider for the residential and commercial door manufacturing market.
Founded in 1959, Norfield serves a base of customers in the pre-hung door machinery industry. It’s headquartered in Chico, Calif., and has a second facility in the Raleigh, NC area.
GED has grown over the years through new product development and by providing exceptional products that assist window manufacturers to improve quality, increase production capabilities, and lower total costs. The acquisition of Norfield allows both GED and Norfield to leverage their different assets and common ideals to continue to serve manufacturers of windows and doors with broader capabilities.
“We are highly impressed with Norfield’s market position, their product portfolio, and long-term customer relationships. Their successful history of serving the door manufacturing market and their focus on value-added solutions is a terrific match for GED, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the GED family,” said Bill Weaver, CEO of GED. “We believe we will accomplish more together in the years to come than we could as separate companies.”
Jeff Reed, executive chairman of GED added that, “Norfield and GED are leaders in their respective equipment markets, and they share the same goals of delivering high quality products, services and aftermarket parts to their customers. The two businesses will complement each other well, and I along with Beekman and GED look forward to supporting their continued growth.”
Both GED and Norfield will retain their respective company brands.
