Alumco is headquartered in Chehalis, Wash., and has
nine manufacturing facilities located throughout the United States that produce
and market window and patio door screens to original equipment manufacturers. Alumco’s
window screens primarily serve vinyl window manufacturers, which Quanex does
not currently serve with window screens. The new business will become part of
Quanex’s Engineered Products group.


 


“I’m pleased to welcome the team from Alumco into the Quanex
family,” said David Petratis, chairman, president and CEO of Quanex. “The acquisition allows us to expand our presence in the
fenestration segment. Quanex currently manufactures window screens for wood
window manufacturers. This acquisition creates the opportunity to become a
leading window and door screen producer in North America, allowing us to extend
our product offering and geographic footprint. Doing so will enable Quanex to
further support North American window OEMs.”
