Pella Corporation announced plans to further expand its capabilities in Florida with the acquisition of aluminum window and door manufacturer Lawson Industries. Miami-based Lawson specializes in impact-resistant aluminum windows and doors as well as installation for the south Florida region.

“Lawson’s skilled workforce and capacity for continued growth is an ideal match for Pella,” Polly Tousey, vice president of subsidiaries for Pella Corporation, said in a news release. “Their values and culture demonstrate sincere caring and commitment to excellence.”

Pella said the strategic acquisition will bolster its presence in south Florida and enable Pella to serve all customers and channels with “a robust portfolio of materials, brands, and services.” Pella said Lawson will continue to serve “business as usual” following the closing of the sale in the summer.

“We are really excited about this transition for our company,” said Harold Bailey, president of Lawson. “Pella is a national brand that is nearly 100 years old and privately owned by the original family who started the company back in 1925. We’re confident they are the perfect company to care for our team members and lead the business to continued growth.”

Lawson will continue to operate under its existing brand name and vice president Ron Bailey will remain with the company to lead business integration efforts.
