Vorteq Coil Finishers LLC, a provider of coil coating services for metal products, has made a strategic acquisition of the assets of Western Metal Decorating, in order to broaden its processing capabilities and geographic reach. In addition, Vorteq is relocating its corporate headquarters from Oconomowoc, Washington, to Pittsburgh, which will more centrally locate Vorteq to its footprint of assets.
Headquartered in Rancho Cucamonga, California, Western produces coated aluminum and steel products, serving pre-painted markets across the western U.S. As part of the transaction, the Western operation will be renamed Vorteq Pacific LLC.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“The expansion of the Vorteq brand to the West Coast is a strategic next step after our highly successful acquisitions on the East Coast in 2016 and Midwest in 2018,” Vorteq CEO Jim Dockey said, in a statement. “The transaction will uniquely position Vorteq to serve its national accounts in the gutter coil and residential building product market from coast to coast. Western also provides a strong foundation to service new markets and customers west of the Rockies.”
