The Cook & Boardman group acquires National Millwork
WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina – The Cook & Boardman Group LLC, a distributor of commercial door entry solutions and security integration services, acquired National Millwork (NMI), based in Riviera Beach, Florida. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
National Millwork was founded in 1998 by Otto Nonnenmann and Michael Bosco with the goal of becoming a full-service door, hardware and joinery company that would both supply and subcontract the construction industry.
In 2015, NMI expanded its geographic reach and distribution capabilities with the acquisition of Elite Door & Trim in Denton, TX, which is included in the transaction.
The company operates hollow metal, door, key and hardware stores; manufactures and installs pre-assembled, retractable, bypass and exterior doors, pavilion and entrance hall finishes, as well as interior trim and moldings. NMI also supplies and installs Division 10 specialty products, including commercial bathroom partitions and bathroom accessories.
“NMI fits perfectly into our strategy of delivering total openness solutions,” said Darrin Anderson, President and CEO of C&B, “and I am delighted to welcome them to the Cook & Boardman family. Their manufacturing capabilities and installation services will allow us to deliver an even greater value proposition to our customers on multi-family and commercial construction projects – including pre-assembled interior doors. ”
“My mission in founding National Millwork over 20 years ago was to become the preferred turnkey supplier for large residential and commercial projects,” noted NMI Founder and CEO Otto Nonnenmann, “and in Cook & Boardman, we have found a partner who shares our vision. “
“Our businesses share a common culture and commitment to customer service,” added Michael Bosco, co-founder and COO of NMI, “and I have no doubts that NMI will thrive under C&B ownership”.
The company will continue to operate under the National Millwork name and customer contact will remain unchanged following the acquisition.
