IRVING, Texas — PrimeSource Building Products, Inc. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire NWI Enterprises (Nationwide), a provider of branded specialty hardware for outdoor residential applications including fence and gate hardware, railing systems, and perimeter security, from affiliates of Harbour Group.
PrimeSource is backed by Clearlake Capital Group, L.P.. The transaction is PrimeSource’s second acquisition during Clearlake’s ownership, which acquired the company in December 2020 and merged it with Dimora Brands. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Based in Tampa, Florida, Nationwide offers a portfolio of 8,000 SKUs focused on residential outdoor living and perimeter security. The combination with Nationwide will further enhance PrimeSource’s portfolio of branded products and expand the Company’s reach into the specialty fence & gate dealer channel.
