Pella Acquires Custom Window Systems
Pella Corp. acquired Ocala, Florida-based Custom Window Systems, which specializes in vinyl and aluminum impact-resistant products. Pella says the acquisition will enable the company to strategically expand and build scale in the high-growth Florida area and coastal regions in the Southeast.
“CWS enhances our product offering and increases our penetration in the large and growing Florida area,” says Tim Yaggi, president and CEO, Pella Corp. “We expect to grow faster together by leveraging Pella’s capabilities and CWS’ regional knowledge, impact-resistant product lines and strong customer relationships.”
Pella will realize both growth synergies and targeted cost efficiencies through this partnership, which will increase scale and enable rapid expansion in the Florida region, according to officials. CWS team members, about 500 across Florida, will continue to work for the company, serving its dealers through the CWS brand name.
“We are extremely pleased to be a part of the Pella family," says Rod Miller, CWS vice president of sales and marketing. "It is both a strategic and cultural fit that will afford us the opportunity to serve more customers by further expanding our capabilities in Florida and other key coastal regions."
