UFP Industries expanded its fence and railing offerings with a recent acquisition.
Grand Rapids Township-based UFP Industries said Monday, Dec. 27, its subsidiary Deckorators Inc. acquired Howell-based Ultra Aluminum Manufacturing, a maker of aluminum fencing, gates and railing, for $25 million. The transaction includes $2 million to be paid if certain future performance goals are met.
Founded in 1996, Ultra designs and produces an extensive selection of ornamental aluminum fence and railing products for contractors, landscapers, fence dealers and wholesalers.
The company had trailing 12-month sales through November 2021 of approximately $46 million.
Russ Springborn, Ultra’s president, and Dave Stewart, vice president of business development, will continue in leadership roles with Ultra.
“This transaction adds aluminum fencing to our current lineup of vinyl and wood fencing and strengthens our commitment to bringing customers more choice and product innovation,” said Landon Tarvin, vice president of Deckorators. “Ultra has a diverse product line, including railing, a loyal and diversified national customer base, and a reputation for quality and professionalism that leads the industry. We’re thrilled to have them as a complement to our existing Deckorators deck and railing business.”
Springborn said by joining the UFP portfolio, Ultra will be afforded new opportunities for expansion.
“Like UFP Industries, we are committed to innovation and growth, and we’re excited for what the future has in store for both our customers and our employees,” he said.
