Window Widgets began in 2000 and became the largest range of universal ancillaries for the fenestration market. In 2012, Window Widgets launched what was to become a defining window system in the form of Residence 9 and today it forms part of The Residence Collection of design-led PVCu window and door systems, with true consumer appeal. These systems have already become the industry benchmark for product design and colour. Now we add Profoil to the group, which has been a specialist of foil lamination for over 25 years.
The Q19 Group will implement an investment programme to support further growth across all its businesses, with bold ambitions for the future direction of the group.
The deal was put together by the Q19 director team with advice from Cattaneo Corporate Finance and Legal Clarity, with financial support from Shawbrook Bank. The management of Profoil Limited was advised by Kingswood Business Sales, a division of Richmond Capital Partners.
Sarah Hitchings, sales and marketing director of Q19 Group, commented: ‘I, along with the other directors of the business, are pleased to announce the strategic acquisition of Profoil, a key supplier to Window Widgets. We now have an opportunity to continue investing and realising the considerable potential of Profoil within our group.’
