Mar. 3, 2016 – – OpenGate Capital has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the Window & Door division of Royal Building Products, a manufacturer of vinyl window profiles and patio doors, from Axiall Corporation. The transaction is expected to close March 31, 2016. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The Window & Door division of Royal Building Products was founded more than 40 years ago and is a leading manufacturer of rigid and cellular vinyl window and patio door profiles, as well as interior vinyl shutters and other extruded vinyl products for a variety of applications. Royal W&D is headquartered in Ontario, Canada with seven manufacturing sites in the United States and Canada.
