CHARLOTTE, NC -- JELD-WEN, the world's largest manufacturer of windows and doors, has announced the acquisition of Aneeta Window Systems (Aneeta), an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of sashless windows in Australia. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Since 1994, Aneeta Windows has specialized in the manufacturing of sashless windows, an innovative system that features two moving panes of counterbalanced glass, without the bulk of a timber or aluminum sash frame surrounding the glass. Based in Melbourne, Aneeta currently operates in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. The company has licensing agreements in the U.S., New Zealand and The Philippines. Aneeta also exports products to Singapore and Mexico, and is exploring other opportunities for international growth.
The addition of Aneeta expands JELD-WEN's family of brands in Australia, which also includes Stegbar, Corinthian, Regency, Airlite, William Russell Doors and JELD-WEN Glass.
"The acquisition of Aneeta is a strong, strategic fit for us," said Kirk Hachigian, JELD-WEN chairman and chief executive officer. "As an industry leader, our goal is to offer the most innovative window and door products not only to our customers in the Australian market, but throughout the globe. We welcome Aneeta as part of JELD-WEN, and are pleased to add their products to JELD-WEN's portfolio of offerings."
The acquisition of Aneeta continues an aggressive growth period for JELD-WEN, and follows the company's recent announcement in early August that it also has acquired Dooria, one of the largest door manufacturers in the Swedish and Norwegian markets.
