CHARLOTTE, N.C.— Jeld-Wen Holding, Inc. acquired Breezway, a manufacturer of residential and commercial louver window systems, based in Brisbane, Australia. Terms of the deal, which took place in September, were not disclosed.
Breezway is the third acquisition in Australia by Jeld-Wen over the past 12 months. Recent Australian acquisitions include Trend Windows & Doors and Aneeta Window Systems. This is also in addition to Jeld-Wen’s existing family of brands in Australia, which includes Stegbar, Corinthian, Regency, Airlite, William Russell Doors, and Jeld-Wen Glass.
“Like Jeld-Wen, Breezway has a long history of innovation,” said Peter Farmakis, executive vice president and president of Jeld-Wen Australia. “It’s a perfect fit for our focus on elevating the design and style that windows bring to beautiful spaces.”
The louver window’s unique design for passive ventilation and high-end style has made Breezway a market leader, according to Jeld-Wen, which says it has been rated the most trusted window and glazing brand in Australia. The company has patented technology for widow climate management systems.
Founded in 1960, Jeld-Wen is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of doors and windows, operating in 19 countries with 113 manufacturing facilities located primarily in North America, Europe and Australia.
