The Cook & Boardman Group LLC (C&B), a specialty distributor of commercial door entry solutions and systems integration services based in Winston-Salem, NC, this month announced its acquisition of Gordonville, PA -based HC Quality Doors. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Serving Lancaster and the SE Pennsylvania market, HC Quality is a supplier of commercial doors and hardware (Divisions 8 and 10) and aluminum store fronts. The company offers full installation and maintenance services through its subsidiary Qualtiy Door Service (QDS), which is included in the acquisition. The company will retain the HC Quality name and customer contacts will remain unchanged as a result of the acquisition. The executive team of Levi Lantz and co-owners Ray Harnish and Mahlon Stoltzfus will continue to manage the business.

 "Our company has a strong history for delivering quality products and services and a deep commitment to customer satisfaction," noted HC Quality president and founder Lantz. "In Cook & Boardman we see a similar passion for serving the industry. Our cultures are very similar and I'm confident that our employees will thrive under C&B ownership."

The company also provides full systems integration services through its A3 Communications division - including physical security, access control, wireless networking, low voltage cabling, audio/visual and managed information technology products. C&B serves multi-family and non-residential markets including the commercial, education, government, healthcare, office, and hospitality sectors from fifty locations across sixteen states.
