Oklahoma City-based M-D Building Products, Inc., a family-owned company involved in developing, manufacturing, and marketing residential and commercial weatherization, flooring, caulking, and specialty extrusion products, has acquired the assets of Louisville-based Cardinal Aluminum Co. and its subsidiaries, Cardinal Architectural and Designer Moulding.
Founded in 1946, Cardinal Aluminum Co. provides custom aluminum extrusion, fabrication and finishing to customers across North America. Cardinal Architectural provides an industry-leading louvered roof system, and Designer Moulding provides metal and wood picture frame mouldings.
“This acquisition strengthens our already diverse product portfolio and supports our strategic growth plans by expanding our current offerings, opening new markets and advancing our position as an industry leading consolidator,” said Loren Plotkin, CEO and chairman of the board, M-D Building Products. “Similar to M-D, Cardinal has a long history of engineering and manufacturing customized products. As two privately held, family-owned companies, we share similar core values, and we are pleased to welcome the Cardinal family to M-D.”
In addition to M-D’s position in residential and commercial weatherization, caulking, flooring and installation markets, the company is one of the nation’s largest aluminum extrusion manufacturers. The acquisition of Cardinal expands M-D’s manufacturing presences and capabilities and provides Cardinal the opportunity to leverage its technical, manufacturing and marketing abilities on a larger scale.”
“As Cardinal celebrates 75 years of business, we recognized it was time to secure the long-term future of the company by joining with M-D, one of the top manufacturers in the country,” said William (Chip) Edwards, president and CEO, Cardinal Aluminum Co.
