CHICAGO, May 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Continental Materials Corporation (“CMC”) (NYSE American: CUO), today announces the acquisition of Serenity Sliding Door Systems (“Serenity”) and Fastrac Building Supply (“Fastrac”), both based in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
This marks the first acquisition for CMC since 2001 as its new strategy of growth through acquisition of family-owned manufacturing companies begins to take shape.
Serenity is a proprietary sliding door system providing superior sound attenuation, sold primarily into healthcare markets across the country. Fastrac is a leading supplier of commercial doors and hardware to healthcare and hospitality customers across the country and will become part of McKinney Door and Hardware, a portfolio company of CMC. Dan Sardi, the founder of Serenity and Fastrac, remains as President of Serenity, and will continue to drive adoption of this innovative space-saving solution for architects, contractors and facility owners.
“This combination provides a unique opportunity to accelerate growth and establish a national footprint, while delivering compelling benefits for our customers, employees and shareholders,” Ryan Sullivan, Chief Operating Officer of CMC, said. “We have been actively seeking U.S.-based manufacturing companies to acquire and are delighted to have found two high quality businesses that fit our strategy. We look forward to working with Dan and supporting Serenity and Fastrac through the upcoming years.”
“I am excited to be partnering with CMC,” Sardi said. “Their focus on investing for the long-term, along with their operational strengths and appreciation for family businesses, distinguished them as I evaluated the best fit for these businesses. I am confident CMC will help drive Serenity and Fastrac to their full potential, creating greater value for our customers and opportunities for our employees.”
