dormakaba has signed an agreement to sell its Mesker hollow metal doors business to the key Principals of Trimco (Oceanside, California) and Metal Manufacturing Industries/MMI (San Luis Potosi, Mexico). The sale is expected to close the latest by June 30, 2022, the end of the current financial year. After, Mesker will operate under a new entity known as Mesker MBM, LP.
Trimco is a recognized leader in the North American market for innovating, designing, and manufacturing architectural hardware products. MMI is the premier hollow metal doors and frames manufacturer in the Mexico market and exports its products to both Central and South America.
“The key principals of the new Mesker MBM organization are proven industry veterans with a strong, customer-centered vision for advancing the hollow metal doors business, with a comprehensive product offering, reliable operations, and responsive regional service centers,” said Alex Housten, President of dormakaba Region Americas.
“Although dormakaba will no longer manufacture hollow metal doors, our architectural specifications team will continue to support Mesker as a PROAlliance partner by writing specifications across the full architectural solutions offering from dormakaba, Trimco, ABH Manufacturing, NGP, and Mesker.”
dormakaba acquired Mesker in late 2016. The Design Hardware product line, which was acquired along with the Mesker hollow metal door business, was separated and integrated within dormakaba’s architectural hardware portfolio, where it will remain. The hollow metal doors business operates under the Mesker, HMX, and WDX brand names in four locations: Phoenix, Arizona; Huntsville, Alabama; Mesquite, Texas; and Deerfield Beach, Florida.
