UFPI Diversifies with Endurable Building Products
UFP Industries announced that a wholly-owned subsidiary of UFP Construction acquired the assets of Endurable Building Products. Minneapolis, Minn.-based Endurable Building Products is a manufacturer of customized structural aluminum systems and products for exterior purposes, such as deck framing, balconies, sunshades, railings, and stairs.
“The addition of Endurable Building Products will strengthen our relationships with existing construction customers by providing them with a new range of products and services, including prefabricated aluminum balconies and railings, which is a growth runway for us,” Patrick Benton, president of UFP Construction, said in a news release. “It also brings experienced, quality people to UFP. David [Battel] and his team have grown Endurable into a leader in the industry, and we look forward to scaling this business to other UFP companies.”
Endurable’s trademarked alumiLAST aluminum deck and balcony systems are known for their low-maintenance design and ease of installation, according to UFP. Endurable serves general contractors in the multifamily market across the United States and had sales of approximately $15 million in 2020. The company’s leadership team, including president David Battel, will remain with the company, according to UFP Industries.
“Joining UFP gives Endurable the opportunity to expand our capacity, broaden our geographic reach, and offer UFP’s complementary products and services to our customers,” Battel said. “I’m very excited about what this means for our customers and for our team members as we continue to build our business as part of UFP Industries.”
Grand Rapids, Mich.-based UFP Industries is a holding company whose operating subsidiaries, UFP Industrial, UFP Construction, and UFP Retail Solutions, manufacture, distribute, and sell a variety of value-added products used in residential and commercial construction.
