CHARLOTTE, NC -- A period of rapid growth for JELD-WEN, the world's largest manufacturer of windows and doors, is continuing with the announcement that the company has acquired LaCantina Doors, a manufacturer of folding and multislide door systems based in Oceanside, California. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The acquisition demonstrates JELD-WEN's commitment to aggressive growth via acquisition and core innovation.
"With the booming popularity of folding and multislide door systems, the acquisition gives us additional resources, capacity and a leading brand in this growing segment of the market," said Colin Shaffner, JELD-WEN senior vice president of windows. "It's a great fit with our mission to continue to push design innovation and offer best-in-class products to our customers not only in North America, but worldwide."
Since 2003, LaCantina has built a reputation for manufacturing award-winning door system solutions for both residential and commercial markets. The company was named one of San Diego's fastest-growing private companies in 2015 by the San Diego Business Journal.
"LaCantina Doors' partnership with JELD-WEN is a fantastic opportunity for us to create greater value for all our customers and employees," says Matt Power, LaCantina's co-founder. "I am excited to join the JELD-WEN team and to continue to lead the market with our brands."
The purchase of LaCantina marks the fourth acquisition for JELD-WEN in 2015, expanding the company's position in the U.S. as well as internationally. The company most recently announced the acquisition of Karona, a stile and rail wood door manufacturer based in Michigan. JELD-WEN also acquired Dooria, a leading provider of residential and commercial wood doors in the Swedish and Norwegian markets, and Aneeta, a manufacturer of sashless window systems in Australia.
