Amerhart Ltd. has acquired Wind Mill Slatwall Products in a strategic move for its company.
“We know Wind Mill very well and were always impressed with their capabilities, leadership, and team-oriented culture, which is very similar to ours,” says Amerhart President and CEO Mark Kasper.
Green Bay, Wis.-based Amerhart has been a key supplier to Wind Mill for the past 15 years and with this new ownership, Kasper says, “We can now make many of the products we distribute that our customers have been asking for. Wind Mill is a great turn-key operation that brings us the ability to manufacture on day one.”
Wind Mill will continue its operations in Sheboygan Falls, Wis., and the current ownership and management team will be retained. Jay Hogfeldt has been president and CEO of Wind Mill since 1980. Mark Radtke will serve as the general manager of the Wind Mill division and vice president of industrial manufacturing for Amerhart.
Wind Mill will also continue to serve its current retail industry customer base, as well as the garage and home organization markets, and will add additional products into the manufacturing schedule for Amerhart, including panels with high-pressure laminate, stair treads, and shelving.
“This is a great opportunity to utilize our capabilities and also expand our employment base in Sheboygan County,” Hogfeldt says.
