North American Specialty Laminations Acquires Haida Industries, LLC

General News

North American Specialty Laminations (“American Laminations”), a platform company of the investment firm Building Industry Partners (“BIP”), has acquired Haida Industries LLC (“Haida”). Going forward, Haida will operate as SourceCut West. SourceCut Industries is an expert in window, millwork & building product component profile wrapping, and is headquartered in Osseo, Wisconsin.

American Laminations invests in and grows companies that manufacture and manipulate specialty substrates and laminate and wrap component profiles for customers in the window, door, flooring, specialty millwork, and cabinet and casegoods markets. Supported by BIP, American Laminations takes a people-first approach to management and looks to partner with leaders that share the belief that aligning interests with employees is the best way to build strong businesses that serve their customers well – and in doing so create shared economic prosperity for all. The expansion to Reno, Nevada establishes a Western manufacturing and distribution hub for SourceCut enabling the American Laminations platform of companies to service building products companies in the Western United States.

Ted Rock, American Laminations CEO, said, “We are honored and thrilled to welcome Haida into the American Laminations family of businesses as the second investment in our platform, operating as SourceCut West. Put simply, our customers have national distribution needs and reach, and we are expanding to accommodate these needs.” Brad Wiedenheoft, the Founder of SourceCut and the CRO of American Laminations, added, “Geographic expansion was an impetus for partnering with BIP to create American Laminations and this acquisition is a critical first step. We look forward to further expansion.”

Pat Mascia, Partner at BIP, commented, “Reno is a location we identified as attractive because it allows SourceCut to serve the West (U.S.). Consumers are demanding color and cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions. Profile wrapping for building product manufacturers meets these interests.”

American Laminations is actively seeking to invest in companies with expertise in substrate manipulation as the platform expands to meet customer demand in building products.

Partners involved in this opportunity were Holland & Knight LLP and Fifth Third Bank.
