Caldwell UK announced today the acquisition of Cotswold Architectural Products Ltd one of the world’s leading friction hinge manufacturing companies.
Caldwell UK Managing Director, Alistair MacAulay, describes the acquisition as “an ideal strategic move for both Caldwell and Cotswold by bringing together two of the most respected names in the UK window & door hardware markets”.
Both businesses, Caldwell UK and Cotswold have built their respective product range and customer base over the last 40 Years and with Cotswold being based in Cheltenham and Caldwell in Coventry the two Midlands based operations are well placed to grow successfully in the improved economic conditions currently prevailing.
The vendors of Cotswold, Lesley McDonough and Iain Morgan will both retain an involvement in the business by providing the new owners with invaluable support and assistance during the post-acquisition period.
Caldwell UK is a subsidiary of Caldwell Manufacturing Company North America LLC which has its headquarters in Rochester, NY, USA and has been in existence since 1888. Caldwell in the US has several manufacturing facilities in the US and Mexico and owns the Advantage Manufacturing Company of Victor, NY which produces the Magnum range of friction hinges.
