In 1996, CVC Funds completed the acquisition of Euramax, an international producer of aluminium, steel, vinyl, copper and fibreglass products for original equipment manufacturers, distributors and contractors worldwide.
Today, the group’s activities include the manufacturing of: specialty coated coils, metal walls, metal and vinyl rain carrying systems, fascia systems, roofing accessories, aluminium and vinyl windows and doors, patio products, windows and sidewalls and aluminium bath and shower cabinets. In addition, Euramax is a leading producer of steel roofing, siding and trim for commercial and architectural building construction.
Euramax currently has its headquarters in Norcross, Georgia, US, and its manufacturing and distribution network consists of 55 strategically located facilities, of which 46 are located in the US, one in Canada, and eight in Europe.
The company was established in 1996 following CVC’s investment, having additionally acquired the fabricated products business of Alumax Inc., an integrated aluminium producer. Euramax has since grown both organically and through a number of strategic acquisitions to become one of the largest suppliers of specialty coated aluminium building materials and RV sidewalls in the US and Western Europe. The business is currently financed by a group of sub-lenders that include GE, Sun Trust and Credit Suisse.
