BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – Northeast Group Holdings, a distributor of specialty building products, is acquiring Crane Woodworking, a producer of architectural millwork in New England. 

Founded in 1988, Northeast Group Holdings provides professional builders, architects, and remodelers with building products, premium windows, and millwork from locations in Bridgeport, New Canaan, and Cornwall Bridge, Conn., Mamaroneck, N.Y., and Long Branch, N.J.

Founded in 1985, Crane Woodworking is a manufacturer and installer of custom architectural millwork for the finest homes and businesses in the New England region. 

“We considered many options while looking for a business partner and Northeast Group Holdings was the best choice for our customers, our employees and our community,” said Doug Crane. “Northeast Group Holdings brings a wealth of industry experience and the resources of a larger operation which, combined with Crane’s specialty in architectural millwork will produce great synergy.” 

Crane’s name will stay the same, and company president, Doug Crane, will stay in his position as will all other employees including senior managers at Crane’s. 

“Crane Woodworking is a strong addition to Northeast Group Holdings’ growing presence in the New England market,” said Jason Cohen, CEO, and president of Northeast Group Holdings. “We’re thrilled to have Doug and his team join the Northeast Group Holdings’ family, as he and his experienced workforce are the go-to experts for all things in custom architectural millwork in New England.” 

Kellick & Associates served as the exclusive advisor to Northeast Building Supply.
