Andersen to Acquire Weiland

September 30, 2013

Andersen Corp. has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Weiland Sliding Doors & Windows Inc., a California-based manufacturer of sliding and folding door systems, for an undisclosed amount. Andersen intends to continue Weiland production and operations in the San Diego area with existing management in place.

“Specialty doors are a growing market segment as outdoor living spaces have increased in popularity,” says Jay Lund, Andersen chairman, president and CEO. “This acquisition accelerates our entry into this important category and closely aligns with the expansion of our architectural products.”

Weiland’s product line includes lift-and-slide and folding door products, as well as pivot doors and European-style tilt-and-turn windows. Custom options include curved and corner configurations, and oversized panels. The portfolio provides performance-grade products including aluminum, wood, and wood clad profiles complementing the Andersen door offerings.

“The two privately held companies share many of the same values, including a commitment to employees, quality and innovation,” says Bill Weiland, founder of the nearly 30-year-old door manufacturer. “This is an exciting day for us, and offers additional resources to increase our product offerings and performance, strengthening both companies.”
