Palo Duro Hardwoods, located in Denver, has been acquired by Eugen Lägler.

Palo Duro, a wholesale distribution company, has been the exclusive North American importer and sales agent for Lägler since 1995. Under the new business model, Jeff Fairbanks, Palo Duro’s former vice president, will serve as president.

Eugen Lägler was founded in 1956. Today, under the management of Karleugen Lägler, Lägler is recognized world-wide as a leader in sanding equipment and technology, and has manufactured more than 50,000 Hummels, according to the company.

“During the past few months, Lägler has been collaborating with us to design and build a new training facility in Denver,” said Fairbanks. “As many wood flooring contractors know, for several years now, Lägler has hosted a training event at its headquarters in Germany, paying for travel, hotel and meals for all attendees. The new facility in Denver will allow us to significantly increase the number of training events we can host.”
