Rugby Architectural Building Products announces the acquisition of Walden’s Distributing, Inc., Fort Worth, TX. Founded in 1962, Walden’s distributes high pressure laminate, cabinet hardware, tools, and accessories to the cabinet manufacturing and woodworking industries.

As part of Rugby, Walden’s Fort Worth distribution center will continue to represent top industry brands including Wilsonart, Salice, Knape & Vogt and many others and will operate in the same location, 5704 Airport Freeway, where it has operated since 1984. “We are excited about the opportunity to join forces with the Walden’s team. With two locations in the DFW area and additional product offerings, it will allow us to broaden our level of service to our customers,” said Tommy Heard, Rugby Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Manager.”

This expansion marks Rugby’s eleventh acquisition since 2010, through which the company has more than doubled its revenue and customer base and grown to 20 distribution centers across the country. “Walden’s, an iconic franchise in one of Rugby’s largest revenue markets, gives Rugby great additional market presence in the Dallas/Fort Worth/Arlington metropolitan area, which was number one in the nation in 2012 for population growth,” commented David Hughes, Rugby President and CEO.
