Schüco International has obtained a minority ownership stake in Skyline Windows, a Bronx, New York-based company specializing in architectural windows, window wall systems and terrace doors. With the move, Skyline will become the exclusive distributor of Schüco’s products in North America.

Schüco is a Germany-based company that provides window, door, façade, ventilation, security and sun shading systems and intelligent networked solutions for commercial and residential projects.

“With a new robust product portfolio and the support of an industry powerhouse, we expect to double our revenue in five years,” says Skyline CEO Matthew Kraus. “It took 100-plus years to get to $100 million in annualized revenue, but we’re creating new revenue streams and will accelerate our path to $200 million.”

According to Schüco CEO Andreas Engelhardt, the company’s investment helps it expand its U.S. presence and drive innovation. He adds that Skyline’s “rich market presence and expertise complement Schüco’s sustainable technology, paving the way for significant revenue growth and transformative developments in the U.S. market.”

Skyline officials explain that the collaboration aims to set new standards for sustainability, energy efficiency and architectural design. The news comes just a year after Schüco USA downsized its Newington, Connecticut, fabrication unit.

  1. Heartiest congratulations to a great team and great companies, but making me feel really old – started doing business with current CEO’s Grandfather, then Steven his son, and assuming this is Steven’s son, who I bought a gift from Tiffany’s for when he was born. And now they are bigger than my company was at the time.

  2. It is certainly the joining of two great names in the industry. Perhaps now, Stephen Kraus can finally retire knowing that his legacy is in good hands and attached to an even bigger brand. Now Steven’s visionof rolling out nationally can finally come to fruition.
