Flack Global Metals Announces Partnership With Windsor America

11 August 2023

Flack Global Metals has announced the successful completion of an investment in Windsor America, the parent company encompassing Windsor Door, Garage Door Services of USA, and Lodi Door. Windsor Door serves as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specializing in residential and commercial sectional overhead garage doors and related components. Meanwhile, Garage Door Services of USA and Lodi Door operate as garage door installation firms catering to homeowners and home builders across multiple cities in six states. The financial terms of the transaction remain undisclosed.

Windsor America has assembled a collection of autonomous businesses with extensive histories spanning five decades. This history solidifies its standing as a distinguished and respected entity within the manufacturing and distribution sphere, concentrating on residential and commercial sectional garage doors, garage door sections, and associated parts. Its clientele includes a diverse array of stakeholders such as dealers, national home builders, custom and regional builders, property managers of multifamily units, and commercial builders throughout North America.

Hans Wright, CEO of Windsor America, emphasized the advantages of the partnership with FGM. He stated, "Our collaboration with FGM presents an outstanding opportunity to align our strategies and provide assurance to our customers and stakeholders. The resources contributed by Jeremy Flack and his team to enhance Windsor America's supply chains for metal building products, along with their expertise in hedging and risk management services, bolster and even elevate our ability to fulfill our mission of producing quality garage doors while delivering an exceptional customer experience."

Jeremy Flack, the founder and CEO of Flack Global Metals, expressed excitement about this new collaboration. He affirmed, "Our partnership with Windsor America is an exciting step forward. As we continue to build upon our past achievements, including the acquisition of Fabral, our commitment remains unwavering in supporting organizations that seek innovation and customer-centric solutions. We are dedicated to collaborating with forward-thinking steel-buying OEMs like the team at Windsor America who share our vision of dissociating metals supply from price through proven risk management strategies."

This investment signifies FGM's second foray into capital investment to enhance and rejuvenate companies and assets that heavily utilize steel. The partnership with Windsor America further solidifies FGM's role as a funding partner for steel-consuming OEMs seeking diverse financing avenues. The inclusion of Windsor America in FGM's portfolio follows closely on the heels of its initial investment, the acquisition of Fabral, a prominent manufacturer of metal roofing and wall systems, in February 2023.
