Trimlite Acquires Builders Hardware

April 7th, 2022 by Editor

Trimlite Mfg Inc., a North American manufacturer and distributor of residential doors and related door products, today announced that it has acquired Builders Hardware Inc., a distributor of exterior door products and hardware.

Founded in 1954, and headquarted in Tampa, Fla., BHI has what Trimlite calls “a strong presence across Florida,” providing high quality products and value-added services to its network of customers.

“I’d like to thank the Godwin family for their decades-long stewardship of this high-quality company. Les, Joel, and Jesse have built a wonderful distribution company and their values complement ours. We look forward to supporting BHI in their next phase of growth,” said Patrick Hooper, CEO of Trimlite.

BHI is the first acquisition by Trimlite since their acquisition of CODEL Entry Systems in 2017.

“As we started to plan for the next chapter for BHI, we felt that Trimlite provided our people and family with the best option,” said Jesse Godwin, BHI’s owner/VPD. “Their commitment to service, quality, and industry expertise gave us a feeling that BHI will be in great hands as we transition away from the business.”

Wynnchurch Capital L.P. acquired Trimlite in July, 2021.

“Wynnchurch welcomes BHI to the Trimlite team. We are excited to partner with BHI to continue to grow their business,” said Brian Crumbaugh, partner at Wynnchurch.
