AmesburyTruth™, a premier manufacturer of window and door components for residential and commercial applications, has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its non-fenestration custom extrusion business based in Ontario, California to VIP Rubber and Plastic Products. Under the terms of the agreement, AmesburyTruth will retain the fenestration custom extrusion business as well as the Bandlock Couplers business.
The 72,000-square-foot facility has approximately 50 employees. The business had numerous competencies including custom fenestration extrusion, custom non-fenestration extrusion, and metal fabrication capabilities. AmesburyTruth will retain two employees who will be instrumental in further developing our fenestration business.
The custom extrusion business in Ontario served a number of markets spanning across fenestration and non-fenestration products. AmesburyTruth will consolidate the custom extrusion business for fenestration products and relocate operations to Cannon Falls, Minnesota. Significant investments have been made in the Cannon Falls facility to satisfy future demand. The engineering team in Cannon Falls will focus on optimizing products through material evaluation, process improvement, and product design to better serve fenestration customers.
The Bandlock Couplers business has already relocated from California to the company’s operations in Fremont, Nebraska. The Fremont facility specializes in metal fabrication and is well staffed with engineers to design, develop and manufacture fittings and couplings needed for the Vacuum industry.
“Our goal is to be North America’s number one supplier of window and door components,” said AmesburyTruth President Jeff Graby. “We’re aligning our business to be the premier manufacturer of fenestration components, and streamlining our manufacturing efficiencies to strengthen our capabilities.”
The sale of the custom extrusion non-fenestration business is expected to be complete on April 13.
