LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - Texas-based cabinet maker Republic Elite (number 82 on the FDMC 300) has acquired Georgia-based Windsor Fixtures - allowing the company to add 125 jobs and to increase its capacity by 40 percent.

Republic said it acquired Windsor because of an increase in demand for multifamily cabinets. 

“Our growth east is fueled by demand, which is why this acquisition is such a critical building block for us,” said Republic Elite Chief Business Officer Adam Sumrow. “Through this presence in Georgia, we aim to reduce our carbon footprint, our freight costs and expand our melamine collections to new clients."

“This was a rare opportunity to acquire a high-quality manufacturing facility in a location that has excellent transport links, and to leverage a local population with skills relevant to our business," said Republic Elite's VP of Procurement Jeff Kroyer.

The acquisition is expected to create 125 jobs in Georgia, said the company. The new space will allow the company to manufacture 315,000 more cabinets annually.

Republic Elite also invested $10 million at its home facility in Texas, where it employs 600 workers and produces 800,000 cabinets a year.

Republic Elite says it specializes in multifamily cabinets and countertops. https://republicelite.com/what-we-do/
