Hunter Douglas has announced plans to acquire window coverings and drapery hardware business and brands, Levolor and Kirsch—both divisions of Newell Rubbermaid.
According to Ron Kass, president and CEO of Hunter Douglas, North America, “Levolor is an exciting addition to the Hunter Douglas portfolio that allows us to supplement our longstanding position in the specialty dealer channel with a strengthened position in the home center channel. Together these businesses will allow us to better service the unique needs of each of these distribution channels and consumer market segments.”
Levolor, founded in 1935, is a supplier of window covering products to the North American home center channels. Kirsch is a long established window covering and drapery hardware brand.
Levolor is based in Atlanta, and has manufacturing facilities in Ogden, Utah; Agua Prieta, Mexico; Shenzhen, China; a customer service center in High Point, N.C., as well as several logistic facilities and sales offices in the U.S and Canada.
The Hunter Douglas Group is comprised of 126 companies, 50 manufacturing facilities and 76 assembly operations in more than 100 countries.
