Metrie, a North American manufacturer and distributor of interior millwork, has announced its acquisition of Pacific MDF Products Inc. (PMDF)and Canadian MDF Products Company (CMDF), collectively known as Pac Trim, located in Rocklin, Calif., and Edmonton, AB, respectively.
Metrie says that, when the newly acquired Pac Trim assets are added to its existing MDF manufacturing facilities, make Metrie the largest MDF moulding manufacturer in North America.
Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Metrie also has MDF moulding manufacturing facilities in Toronto, Ontario, and Calgary, Alberta, as well as a softwood manufacturing facility in Ferndale, Washington, and a pre-finished manufacturing facility in Surrey, British Columbia. The company also operates 26 distribution centres in the U.S. and Canada.
The acquisition allows Metrie entry into the California market, expanding the company’s customer reach, and adds to its overall footprint and production capabilities in Western Canada and the West/Pacific Northwest region in the US.
“During these challenging times, Metrie is well-positioned for continued growth. Our acquisition of Pac Trim complements our manufacturing capabilities, so we can better serve our customers’ needs. This investment represents an important strategic opportunity for Metrie and its Channel partners,” said Kent Bowie, Metrie president & CEO. “Expanding our manufacturing footprint and entering the California market are both great opportunities for us, and we’re looking forward to growing our business in these two key areas.”
