Partnership expands product offering, footprint and manufacturing

MACEDONIA, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#acquisitionlt;/agt;–Great Day Improvements, LLC, one of the Top 25 largest residential
remodeling companies, best known for its popular sunroom and window
brands Patio Enclosures and Stanek Windows, announced the acquisition of
Hartshorn Custom Contracting, Inc. Hartshorn, a 28-year old Tampa,
FL-based company, specializes in the custom manufacturing and
installation of screen enclosures for pools, lanais and patios.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Hartshorn Custom Contracting, Inc. to our
family of businesses. Their exceptional quality, custom-made products
complement our existing patio enclosure business perfectly and will
allow us to better serve our customers and their design needs in
southern markets,” said company President/CEO, Michael Hoy. “Plus,
Hartshorn brings to our organization a strong and experienced team with
considerable tenure in the enclosures business, which is a huge asset.”

One of Great Day Improvements’ main differentiators as a company is
their ability to custom design and custom manufacture their products.
“We’re not a one-size fits all outfit,” said Hoy. “We have the ability
to create custom solutions for our customers, which makes us unique in
the marketplace. Hartshorn Custom Contracting has similar capabilities,
as their name suggests, which was part of their appeal,” added Hoy.
Hartshorn custom designs and custom manufactures their pool and screen
enclosure products at their Tampa, FL facility while Great Day
Improvements will continue to custom manufacture their Patio Enclosures
and Stanek Windows brand products at their Macedonia, OH facility.
Operating two manufacturing facilities in different parts of the
country, each with their own specialties, will create additional
opportunities for the company as it continues to grow geographically.

Growth through acquisition is part of a long-term business plan for the
company. “Great Day is actively seeking acquisitions in the building
products sector as part of its ‘Strategic Transactions’ initiative,”
said Great Day Improvements Chairman, Ed Weinfurtner. “We seek
businesses that can be additive in terms of people, products,
capabilities, and new geographic markets. Hartshorn is a great example
of the kind of business that fits with Great Day,” Weinfurtner added.

The acquisition of Hartshorn marks another milestone event for Great Day
Improvements. In the last 5 years, the company has doubled in size and
footprint, expanding its presence to 27 metropolitan markets throughout
the Midwest and Northeastern United States and is ranked as one of the
Top 25 largest residential remodeling companies in the country according
to Qualified Remodeler Magazine.

With the addition of Hartshorn Custom Contracting, Great Day
Improvements now employs over 425 people across 28 U.S. markets.
