North American Specialty Laminations (NASL), a provider of differentiated specialty lamination, fabrication, and finishing solutions to the building products OEM industry, acquired Diversified Manufacturing of California (DMOC) dba Profile Wrapping, a West coast-based profile lamination wrapping specialist. NASL serves customers in the window, door, flooring, specialty millwork, cabinetry, and case goods markets and is backed by building industry-focused private equity firm Building Industry Partners (BIP).
In the past 18 months, NASL has completed three acquisitions and opened one greenfield facility.
“It’s critical that we continue to shorten the supply chain for our customers, as well as help them capitalize prudently on the growing demand for color in building products,” Doug Rende, CEO of NASL, said in a prepared statement. “The increased capacity and expanded geographic footprint we’ve realized by acquiring DMOC will enable us to help our customers more efficiently respond to both current market challenges and growth opportunities.”
DMOC specializes in applying acrylic exterior laminates, as well as real wood veneers, paper veneer products, and paintable, stainable veneers to any profile. According to NASL, DMOC’s expertise will “immediately augment” NASL’s lamination capabilities and capacity, particularly for color products in the window and door markets. The acquisition also facilitates NASL’s access to customers in the western United States and Mexico.
“Our team is excited to be part of building a national business,” Thane Rivers, founder and CEO of DMOC, said. “We are committed to helping NASL continue on its trajectory of rapid growth and expansion.”
Post acquisition, Rivers will serve as NASL’s senior vice president of lamination operations. NASL now employs nearly 200 team members across five locations in Osseo, Wis., Middleton, Wis., Sparks, Nev., Roanoke, Va., and Vista, Calif.
NSAL is a building products lamination, finishing, and specialty manufacturing company serving the window, door, cabinet, furniture, and architectural millwork industries.
Founded in 2008, BIP has helped launch US LBM, Kodiak Building Partners, United Cabinet Holdings, Rugby Architectural Building Products, Homewood Holdings, and U.S. Fence Solutions/Binford Supply.
