Deceuninck Expands Pultrusion Capabilities with Recent Acquisition

Deceuninck North America of Monroe, Ohio, has acquired the pultrusion assets and related intellectual property of Graham Engineering, a manufacturer of blow molding machinery based in York, Pa. The acquisition gives Deceuninck seven manufacturing lines specifically devoted to pultrusion.

According to Deceuninck, the company will simultaneously serve as the singular supplier of pultruded polyurethane window components to Graham Architectural Products (GAP) for its GTHurm® composite window and curtainwall systems. GAP is a sister company to Graham Engineering.

“Through the acquisition of Graham Engineering’s equipment and know-how, Deceuninck is securing its spot as a leader in this important market sector, one that has specific relevance to our current residential customers as well as the commercial construction industry,” says Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “This further expands our capability to offer something our customers and their customers are seeking— products with superior strength and increased energy efficiency.”

“We are excited about the bright future we see for the technologically advanced GThurm window and curtainwall systems and the prospect of working with a company like Deceuninck,” says Brian Hurley, president and CEO of GAP. “Their commitment to quality and innovation, much like our own, is a key factor in what we believe will be a very successful venture.”

Both Graham Engineering and GAP are part of the Graham Group, a private investment group.
