Our companies are a good fit culturally, which better positions our business to continue its growth as a market leader in the outdoor living products category.”

This will allow for both companies to leverage people, equipment and ideas to expand the level and quality of products and services available to our customers.”

The DuraLife brand will remain unchanged and will continue to operate out of the existing Biddeford, Maine facility. Both companies anticipate the integration of the two will be nearly seamless for their customers and distribution partners.
