Great Day Improvements Acquires Champion WindowsJanuary 3rd, 2022 by Editor
Not even a full month after Great Day Improvements (GDI) announced its acquisition of Universal Windows Direct, the company has now added Champion Windows to its ranks. Champion Windows is a direct-to-consumer company headquartered in Sharonville, Ohio, outside of Cincinnati.
“So much has happened in the last two months and we are thrilled that both Champion Windows and Universal Windows Direct could be added to our company,” said Michael Hoy, CEO of Great Day Improvements. “Champion Windows strengthens Great Day’s position as a national leader in replacement windows and sunrooms and creates new opportunities for improvement and growth. Our shared vision is an organization that has a differentiated approach to marketing, systems, technology, products, service, and, most importantly, people.”
Great Day Improvements says these most recent acquisitions are part of a coordinated effort to transform its business.
“We believe the moves we’ve made in the last few months will enable us to create a home improvement company with the scale and scope to successfully serve the direct-to-consumer business model on a national basis,” said Ed Weinfurtner, executive chairman of GDI. “We’ve taken a giant step forward on this vision by joining forces with Champion and Universal and declaring our intentions to invest in building our business. Our expanded team knows this space well and are leaders in this industry. With Great Day Improvements, Universal Windows Direct, and now Champion coming together we can provide an even better experience for our customers.”
“For more than six decades, we’ve built quality products backed by excellent customer service, and Great Day Improvements has those same qualities,” said Todd Dickson, CEO of Champion Windows. “As the direct-to-consumer industry in the home improvement marketplace continues to mature, Great Day Improvements is the right partner at the right time to position Champion for continued growth and success.”
Hoy will lead the combined companies, and Dickson will continue to lead Champion’s executive team. Great Day Improvements is the parent company of Patio Enclosures, Stanek Windows, APEX Energy Solutions, Hartshorn Custom Contracting, and most recently Universal Windows Direct.
