Mountain Top, PA December 16, 2011 ] Effective immediately, Janus International will cease to produce architectural coiling door products. Their plan is to redirect their energy towards advancing their already leading position in the sheet door business.
CIW Enterprises, Inc., the owner of The Cookson Company, Inc. and Cornell Iron Works, Inc., has entered into an agreement to purchase substantial manufacturing assets from Janus as well as inventory. "I am very excited about the opportunity this agreement affords us," says Andrew Cornell, President of CIWE. "It allows both companies to grow our leadership positions in each of our respective segments. We will continue to use our position to assure an unmatched level of quality to our distributor, architect and contractor customers."
Neither Cookson nor Cornell intends to manufacture the Janus rolling service products. While Janus will retain responsibility for any installed product, CIWE and its brands will attempt to handle any issues that may arise. The Cookson and Cornell brands will work to the best of their ability to assist Janus in the processing of any repair needs or warranty claims.
