Deceuninck Expands Pultrusion Capabilities; Partners with Graham Architectural Products
August 29, 2013
Deceuninck North America has acquired the pultrusion assets and related intellectual property of Graham Engineering, a manufacturer of blow molding machinery based in York, Pa. With the purchase, Deceuninck will serve as the sole supplier of pultruded polyurethane window components to Graham Architectural Products. GAP, also based in York, is a sister company to Graham Engineering that manufactures architectural-grade windows, doors and curtain wall. Through its acquisition of Graham Engineering’s assets, Deceuninck now has seven manufacturing lines specifically devoted to pultrusion.
“Through the acquisition of Graham Engineering’s equipment and know-how, Deceuninck is securing its spot as a leader in this important market sector, one that has specific relevance to our current residential customers as well the commercial construction industry,” says Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “This further expands our capability to offer something our customers and their customers are seeking: products with superior strength and increased energy efficiency. Deceuninck’s Innergy Rigid Thermal Reinforcements and hybrid window and door systems are based on pultruded polypropylene technology and are clear examples of this. With this acquisition, we are proud to add Graham Architectural Products to our list of industry-leading customers.”
