Nautic Partners acquires Fla. window manufacturer

Posted 8/4/14

PROVIDENCE – Private equity firm Nautic Partners LLC has acquired Custom Window Systems Inc., a manufacturer of impact-resistant and non-impact windows, doors and porch enclosures.

Headquartered in Ocala, Fla., Custom Window Systems serves builders and contractors in regions throughout the southeastern United States where exposure to high winds, tropical storms and hurricanes necessitate impact-resistant vinyl windows and doors, and which have strict building codes.

Nautic said in a release announcing the acquisition that Custom Window Systems, founded in 1986, has a long-running track record of producing high-quality products that will continue to drive growth for the company in a growing market.

“We believe that Custom has developed into one of the largest and most well-respected window and door manufacturers in Florida by developing high-quality products and providing a consistently high level of service to its customers,” said Doug Hill, managing director of Nautic Partners. “Custom is ideally positioned for further growth given the attractiveness of the Florida market and the company’s leading reputation across multiple product categories.”

GE Capital, Jefferies LLC, Newstar Financial and Triangle Capital Corp. provided financing for the transaction, according to a Nautic release. Additional terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Nautic is a middle-market private equity firm with more than $2.5 billion in assets under management. The firm has completed 116 acquisitions since its founding in 1986 in industries such as business services, manufacturing and health care.
