Ten-unit Bliffert Lumber & Hardware, Milwaukee, Wi., has acquired Milwaukee hardwooid moulding and custom millwork manufacturer Fillinger Millwork.
“My brother and I managed A. Fillinger, Inc. through its fourth generation, and we’re proud of securing a long-term future for our staff and product lines,” said Justin Fillinger, co-owner of A. Fillinger, Inc. “By joining the Bliffert team, we align our mutually beneficial goals of building a sustainable and high-efficiency production environment in the moulding and cabinetry industry. We are thrilled to join forces with another historical Wisconsin family business.”
“The Fillinger family has been an institution in Wisconsin for generations. Their reputation for innovation and old-world craftsmanship is unparalleled,” said Eli Bliffert, VP of Bliffert Lumber & Hardware. “We are very excited to merge their family into ours. Adding the Fillinger manufacturing and custom cabinet lines gives our customers more options. Without a doubt, we are stronger together.”
Fillinger Millwork is a fourth-generation, family-owned business founded in 1938 as a cabinet shop, evolving to a lumber mill, retail hardware store, lumberyard, and now millwork producer.
