SKOKIE, Ill.— AZEK Building Products, manufacturer of AZEK and TimberTech brands, has acquired WES, LLC., a company that sells engineered railing systems and assembly machines under UltraLox, Harmony, and other brands. The transaction is expected to close before Dec. 31.
“We are very excited to make this announcement and about what this transaction represents for both AZEK Building Products and UltraLox,” said Jesse Singh, CEO of CPG International, AZEK Building Products’ parent company.
“While UltraLox will continue to operate as a separate company with its existing management team, we are bringing additional resources to support the growth of the company through enhanced service levels to its customers and ongoing product and market development. In addition, we expect to leverage the expertise of the UltraLox team in aluminum railing design and engineering to further develop the AZEK and TimberTech railing products.”
WES, LLC headquartered in Eagan, Minn., develops aluminum railing, porch and patio products for the residential and commercial markets.
“I know I speak for the entire UltraLox team when I say that we are proud to be joining forces with AZEK Building Products,” said Edward Peterson, SVP of Sales and Marketing for UltraLox. “For our customers, we will be in an even stronger position to help support their growth and business. And, for our employees, this opens up a range of potential future career growth opportunities.”
In addition to finished rail systems sold under the Harmony and other brand names, the company developed and markets the UltraLox Interlocking machine that allows customers to assemble standard and custom aluminum railing.
