Hunter Douglas acquires Acme Window Coverings

Hunter Douglas, one of the country’s largest window coverings manufacturers, has acquired the assets of Acme Window Coverings, based in Willowbrook, Ill. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Acme has been a longtime fabricator for Hunter Douglas’ custom products, according to the company. Acme’s sales organization will continue to support its existing dealer base, and Joe Tantillo will continue to serve as president of the Acme unit.

Hunter Douglas plans to transfer Acme’s fabrication operations to Hunter Douglas Fabrication in Cumberland, Md. The Cumberland facility recently was expanded by 120,000 square feet, and it is Hunter Douglas’ largest fabrication site.

“We are pleased to acquire this outstanding company,” said Marv Hopkins, Hunter Douglas president and CEO.
