Cook & Boardman Acquires Pinnacle Door & Hardware and Specialized Architectural Products

November 16, 2017

Winston-Salem, NC – The Cook & Boardman Group (“Cook & Boardman”), a portfolio company of Ridgemont Equity Partners, today announced the acquisition of two Tampa, Florida-based distributors of commercial doors, hardware and other accessories. The Pinnacle Door & Hardware and Specialized Architectural Products transactions closed in the second quarter and fourth quarter of 2017, respectively, and no other financial terms were disclosed.

“The addition of Pinnacle Door & Hardware and Specialized Architectural Products to the Cook & Boardman platform is a natural evolution for both businesses,” said Darrin Anderson, CEO of Cook & Boardman. “We have operated a Sarasota location for many years and have a strong presence in the state of Florida, so expanding our footprint inside of an existing and vibrant market makes a lot of sense strategically. Pinnacle Door & Hardware and Specialized Architectural Products have long histories across a number of attractive end-markets – including healthcare, hospitality and government – and also offer comprehensive installation services to its clients, which enhances our service offering and deepens our firm’s industry expertise. We are very pleased about the combination and look forward to continuing the growth of the entire platform alongside our new team members.”
