GED Integrated Solutions Inc., a portfolio company of The Beekman Group, has acquired Norfield Inc., a California-based automation equipment, parts and services provider for the commercial and residential door manufacturing market.
Founded in 1959, Norfield serves a base of customers in the pre-hung door machinery industry. It’s headquartered in Chico, Calif., and has a second facility in the Raleigh, N.C., area.
The acquisition of Norfield allows both GED and Norfield to leverage their different assets and common ideals to continue to serve manufacturers of windows and doors with broader capabilities, according to the company. Both GED and Norfield will retain their respective company brands.
“We are highly impressed with Norfield’s market position, [its] product portfolio and long-term customer relationships. [Its] successful history of serving the door manufacturing market and focus on value-added solutions is a terrific match for GED, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the GED family,” says Bill Weaver, CEO of GED. “We believe we will accomplish more together in the years to come than we could as separate companies.”
“Norfield and GED are leaders in their respective equipment markets, and they share the same goals of delivering high quality products, services and aftermarket parts to their customers,” adds Jeff Reed, executive chairperson of GED. “The two businesses will complement each other well, and I, along with Beekman and GED, look forward to supporting their continued growth.”
