Metrie, North America’s largest manufacturer and distributor of millwork solutions, has completed its acquisition of EL & EL Wood Products Corp., Chino, Ca.
“We want our existing customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders in the Southwest to know that this transaction will not change our customer excellence mindset,” said Metrie president and CEO Kent Bowie. “To showcase that continuity of service, for the foreseeable future the Southwest business will carry both the Metrie and EL & EL names.”
The Metrie EL & EL business in the Southwest will continue to be managed by Lincoln Orellana, regional director, California, who has been with EL & EL for nine years.
“We now have a strong presence in every strategic market in Canada and the US; and we are still growing. For family-owned businesses seeking financial and ownership optionality in a consolidating market, like EL & EL Wood Products, Metrie can be a friendly partner of choice,” concluded Bowie.
