BAYPORT, Minn. (September 30, 2013) – Andersen Corporation, the leading manufacturer of windows and doors, and Weiland Sliding Doors and Windows, Inc., a leader in the specialty door segment, today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Andersen will acquire Weiland for an undisclosed amount. The Boards of Director for the two privately held companies unanimously approved the transaction.


“Specialty doors are a growing market segment as outdoor living spaces have increased in popularity,” said Andersen Corporation Chairman, President and CEO Jay Lund. “This acquisition accelerates our entry into this important category and closely aligns with the expansion of our architectural products.”

Weiland’s specialty door offerings include lift and slide, folding door products, as well as pivot doors and European styled tilt and turn windows. Virtually limitless options include curved and corner configurations and oversized panels. The portfolio provides performance-grade products including aluminum, wood, and wood clad profiles complementing the Andersen door offerings.


Andersen intends to continue Weiland production and operations in the San Diego area with existing management in place.


“The two privately held companies share many of the same values, including a commitment to employees, quality and innovation,” said Weiland Founder Bill Weiland. “This is an exciting day for us, and offers additional resources to increase our product offerings and performance, strengthening both companies.”


Headquartered in Bayport, Minnesota, Andersen Corporation includes Andersen Windows, Renewal by Andersen, and Silver Line Building Products. Andersen employs 9,000 people in locations across North America with sales worldwide. Andersen received the 2013 ENERGY STAR® Sustained Excellence award for its ongoing commitment to sustainability.
