Woodgrain Millwork Buys Monarch

Woodgrain Millwork has acquired Monarch Windows & Doors, an Anniston, AL, manufacturer that serves the Southeast United States. Monarch has more than 200,000 square feet of production space and about 200 employees. The company did not disclose the terms of the deal.

“Monarch Windows and Woodgrain Millwork have cultures, values and business models that align extremely well,” says John Smit, president of the window division of Woodgrain Millwork. “Employees, customers and vendors will benefit from the union of our two organizations.”

Woodgrain Millwork, based in Fruitland, ID, is the parent company of Windsor Windows, which produces windows and doors at facilities in Iowa and North Carolina. It also owns Atrium Doors in Texas, and is said to be the largest manufacturer of interior pine doors in the country. In total, Woodgrain has five divisions and 29 manufacturing and warehouse facilities in the United States and South America.
