Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope® (OBE), a CRH company, has completed the transaction to acquire certain assets and liabilities of Graham Architectural Products Co. Graham, based in York, Pa., is a nationally recognized pioneer in the fenestration industry, serving the Midwest and Northeast regions of the U.S., according to the company.
“The Graham name has been synonymous with high quality and innovation for more than 50 years and we look to build on their great reputation,” says Liz Haggerty, president of OBE. “This acquisition will strengthen our product portfolio and enhance our access to new markets while improving our competitive advantage as a single-source glazing systems solutions provider, further allowing us be a better strategic partner to our customers in the building façade value chain.”
Graham Architectural Products began manufacturing window tooling products in 1964 and was assembling window units on a contract basis by 1970. The company began manufacturing windows in 1972. Now the company is a manufacturer of engineered, commercial, window, door and window wall systems specializing in energy efficient, historical, blast protection and high-performance products and solutions, which OBE states is a strong complement to its existing product offerings, ranging from fabricated glass, architectural hardware and metal systems.
“OBE possesses a very similar entrepreneurial culture as Graham that engenders innovation and collaboration, centered around customer service and employee well-being and community,” says Paul Rudy, chairperson of Graham Capital and Graham Architectural Products Co. “As part of Graham Architectural Product’s continued progression and next chapter, we are pleased to find a partner—the caliber of OBE—to entrust the future of our employees and community.”
“We are especially pleased to welcome the Graham Architectural Products Company team to the OBE family and look forward to continued growth with the combined organizations,” adds Haggerty.
