Viewrail, Goshen, In., has agreed to acquire stairway manufacturer Simmons Stairways, San Jose, Ca.
Trent Jacobs, Viewrail’s director of California business development, will run the company until the end of the year, at which time all new business will transfer to Viewrail.
Len Morris, CEO of Viewrail, called the acquisition “a fantastic opportunity to bring Viewrail’s design ability and manufacturing power to the California region.”
“It seemed like a good fit,” said Howard Simmons, current owner of Simmons Stairways, Inc. “Viewrail has the product and technology, and I am in a great market with years of experience on the West Coast.”
