HOLSTEIN, IA -- VT Industries, manufacturer of postformed laminate countertops and architectural wood doors, acquired Rome, GA-based Capitoline Products, a regional laminate countertop and decorative panel manufacturer.

According to VT, the Capitoline acquisition is an effort to expand the laminate countertop category.

“Category innovation and continued growth are just two of the benefits of the Capitoline acquisition,” said Craig Francisco, senior vice president for VT’s Dimensions and GeoScapes divisions. “There is an obvious synergy that will positively impact future business and the momentum VT’s Dimensions and GeoScapes products have achieved within the countertop industry will continue to crescendo.”

The company launched its Dimensions Countertop divsion in 2013 and also in November of 2013 it acquired Clarksville, IA-based Creative Composites, a manufacturer and distributor of specialty sound- and fire-rated door cores, to help speed up product development of materials for its architectural wood doors.
