As part of its continued strategic growth objectives for 2020, Hardwoods Distribution Inc. (HDI) announced that it has, through its subsidiary Rugby Architectural Building Products (Rugby), purchased River City Millwork.
River City Millwork operates in Rockford, Ill., and will continue to conduct business under the River City Millwork brand at its current location, as part of the Rugby Architectural Building Products division of HDI.
Within Rugby, the acquisition will operate as part of the Rugby Midwest Region with oversight by Midwest Regional Manager Rod Beason. Mr. Beason says “We are pleased to welcome River City General Manager Tim Zumbro and his entire team to Rugby. This highly complementary acquisition adds resources and expands capabilities that will be synergetic across our network of door and millwork locations. We anticipate a very smooth integration that is further aligned by both companies operating on the same Agility ERP software.”
This is a strategic expansion of Rugby’s growing door and related millwork business. Rugby purchased the four locations of Pacific Mutual Door Co. in 2019, adding a profitable business model and expanding its existing presence in the mid-west. Rugby first entered the door and millwork market in 2012, with sales now approximately $160 million annually at the following 11 locations: Albuquerque, N.M.; Boise, Idaho; Portland, Ore.; Kansas City, Kan.; Nashville, Tenn.; Lenexa, Kan.; Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and now Rockford, Ill..
