This should be hitting the news sites soon. Atrium bought North Star Windows and Doors - the deal was finalized and announced last Thursday. This is Atrium's first Canadian acquisition.

Comments anyone?

Interesting; the question is which way will the business flow?

Atrium into Canada, or North Star into the US?

As the press release said we (North Star) do about 70% replacement, so hopefully this is an "in" to the new construction market for us.

Business will probably go both ways. North Star is a great place to start their march onto Canada.

What is the reputation of Atrium? I've never been part of a large company before.

Atrium is typically know as a low cost alternative in the new construction market. Nothing wrong with having your nitche.

We should supplement them nicely then. We're on the upper end of both quality and price.

In Southern California Atrium is having a problem getting their Sliding Door and Swing Doors to meet the requirements for the new tax credit. As of today the Atrium sliding door and swing doors do not qualify for the tax credit.

Atrium also owns Thermal Ind.. I cherry pick their lines, they do a nice job with bays and bows.
