P.H. Tech Completes Accent Acquisition

June 1, 2011

Accent Windows Inc., based in Westminster, Colo., has been acquired by P.H. Tech Inc. The Quebec-based PVC extruder reports it has completed the aquisition process started when its long-time customer filed for a Chapter 11 reorganization in March.

“This is a financial decision aimed at protecting our presence in Western U.S. and helping our client regain its financial self‐sufficiency,” says Serge Falardeau, P.H. Tech president. "The transaction, therefore, allows Accent to make a fresh start."

Under new ownership, the Colorado manufacturer will continue to do business as Accent Windows and use the same trademarks on which its reputation for quality has been built, P.H. Tech officials note. It will serve its clientele with the same employee base—apart from a few management team changes—and continue to offer a wide range of products designed for renovations.

With the acquisition completed, Accent can now aspire to resuming the success it enjoyed early in the previous decade, when it was among the leading window and door manufacturers and remodeling companies in the country, P.H. Tech officials note.

Based in Lévis, Quebec, the extruder has supplied Accent for 18 years and produced vinyl window and door profiles for nearly 50 years, the company reports. Its products are used by manufacturers in Canada, the United States, and Japan.  In addition to its Canadian extrusion operations, the company also has a patio door assembly plant based in Leetsdale, Pa.
