CHARLOTTE, N.CA (October 5, 2015) —A period of rapid growth for Jeld-Wen continues with the announcement today that the company acquired LaCantina Doors, a manufacturer of award-winning folding and multislide door systems based in Oceanside, Calif. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“With the booming popularity of folding and multislide door systems, the acquisition gives us additional resources, capacity and a leading brand in this growing segment of the market,” said Colin Shaffner, Jeld-Wen senior vice president of windows. “It’s a great fit with our mission to continue to push design innovation and offer best-in-class products to our customers not only in North America, but worldwide.”

The purchase of LaCantina marks the fourth acquisition for Jeld-Wen in 2015. The company most recently announced the acquisition of Karona, a stile and rail wood door manufacturer based in Michigan. Window & Door reported last month that Jeld-Wen also acquired Dooria, a provider of residential and commercial wood doors in the Swedish and Norwegian markets, and covered the company's acquisition of Aneeta, a manufacturer of sashless window systems in Australia.
