Charlotte-based Jeld-Wen acquires another Australian company

Charlotte-based doormaker Jeld-Wen has acquired an Australian company called Breezeway, which makes high-end residential and commercial window systems.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Breezeway deal marks Jeld-Wen’s third Australian acquisition in a year – the others include Trend Windows & Doors and Aneeta Window Systems.

“It’s a perfect fit for our focus on elevating the design and style that windows bring to beautiful spaces,” Peter Farmakis, executive vice president and president of Jeld-Wen Australia, said in a statement this week.

Jeld-Wen, headquartered uptown, manufactures windows and doors for HGTV’s remodeling TV show “Dream Home.”

The company filed to go public earlier this year, and is reportedly also considering selling itself.
