Citing a renewed focus on its flooring and countertop surfacing businesses, Jaeckle Distributors has sold its hardware products division to Amerhart Ltd, a wholesale building materials distribution company headquartered in Green Bay, Wisc.  Amerhart’s purchase of Jaeckle’s hardware division includes over 11,000 product SKUs from manufacturers like Grass America, Accuride and Rev-a-Shelf.

“We’ve weathered this recession well, and with this sale, we’re poised to grow,” said Jeff Jaeckle, president. “Hardware was just 10% of our business, but a significant portion of our order processing time. Now, we can focus entirely on flooring and surfacing and aggressively grow these divisions.”

“As one of the largest flooring and surfacing distributors in the Midwest, we already offer a great variety of products in a range of prices,” Jaeckle added. “And we’ll expand and invest in our current product lines as well as introduce new ones, such as, granite countertops by Natural Stone Systems and proprietary lines, like our very competitive Trends in Stone program and Trillium collection of wood-grain-enhanced bamboo.”
