It’s been ten years since spacer manufacturer Edgetech became part of billion-dollar building products group Quanex.
Back in 2011, Edgetech was already a leading spacer supplier, and one of fenestration’s most forward-thinking companies.
It was that legacy of innovation and product excellence that caught the attention of Quanex, which had grown from humble beginnings in South Lyon, Michigan to become a New York Stock Exchange-listed building products powerhouse.
“This is a fantastic milestone, and has given us all cause to reflect on everything Edgetech and Quanex have achieved together over the last decade,” comments Edgetech Managing Director Chris Alderson.
“From the very beginning, the two businesses were an excellent fit – both committed to health and safety, employee wellbeing, product innovation, sustainability, and much more.
“Since 2011, those synergies have enabled us to continue pushing boundaries, developing new products, and cementing Edgetech’s reputation as a global leader in spacer technology.
“Fittingly, as we enter our second decade as part of Quanex, we’re currently in the process of implementing a new, group-wide four tier strategy designed to guide our development in the coming years.
“Each of the four tiers represents a crucial stakeholder that we serve – customers, employees, shareholders, and the community.
“By doing everything we can to delight and exceed the expectations of each of these sectors, we know we can build a business that’s even stronger, more innovative, and that provides an even better service to customers all around the world.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank George, our CEO, and the rest of the Quanex executive leadership for all their support and encouragement over the last decade, and we’re extremely excited to see what we can achieve together in the years ahead.”
Quanex President and CEO George Wilson comments: “I’ve worked very closely with Chris and the Edgetech team over the last ten years, and we’re delighted they’re a part of the Quanex family.
“Their dedication to product excellence, innovation and providing the highest quality customer service is an asset to the Quanex Group, and I look forward to working with them further in the decade to come.”
