ROCKFORD, Ill. — Hardwoods Distribution Inc. (HDI) has announced its acquisition, through its subsidiary Rugby Architectural Building Products, of River City Millwork. This marks HDI’s third acquisition this year.
River City Millwork operates in Rockford, Illinois and will continue to conduct business under the River City Millwork brand at its current location, as part of the Rugby Architectural Building Products division of HDI.
Within Rugby, the new acquisition will operate as part of the Rugby Midwest Region with oversight by Midwest Regional Manager, Rod Beason. “We are pleased to welcome River City General Manager Tim Zumbro and his entire team to Rugby. This highly complementary acquisition adds resources and expands capabilities that will be synergetic across our network of door and millwork locations. We anticipate a very smooth integration that is further aligned by both companies operating on the same Agility ERP software,” Mr. Beason said in a press release.
The acquisition is an expansion of Rugby’s growing door and related millwork business. Rugby purchased the four locations of Pacific Mutual Door Company in 2019, expanding its existing presence in the Midwest. Rugby first entered the door and millwork market in 2012, with sales now approximately $160 million annually through 11 locations.
