The Everlast Group has today acquired Alberta Vinyl Windows & Doors (AVWD), a Calgary, Alberta based manufacturer of vinyl windows and entrance doors. The acquisition helps to support Everlast’s planned expansion into the Western Canadian and US markets. “We’re very excited to have a home in Calgary,” stated Everlast President Mike Bruno. “We’re looking forward to working with AVWD’s customers and staff to continue providing great products and service.”

In conjunction with the acquisition, Everlast will immediately double AVWD’s existing Calgary manufacturing facility to make way for new and existing luxury aluminum products to complement the product line. The new venture will operate under the leadership of Dallas Paquette as General Manager & Managing Partner. Also based in Calgary, Michael Andrade will take on the role of Managing Partner in addition to his existing role as Senior Advisor to the Everlast Board of Directors overseeing strategic planning, product development and manufacturing.

Ron Steppacher and the rest of the management team will continue to operate in the business to assist with the transition and will play a key part in Everlast’s expansion plans. “I’ve known these guys for a very long time,” says Steppacher. “Family is very important to them. Dianne and I are thrilled to be a part of their family.”
