Rugby acquires Long Island operations of NYI Building Products
Rugby Architectural Building Products, Concord, NH announces its expansion in the New York City/Long Island metropolitan area with the acquisition of the Long Island operations of NYI Building Products, Deer Park, NY. This operation will be combined with the industrial wood coatings operation of the former EBS Finishing Systems, Lindenhurst, NY which was acquired by Rugby in December 2011. The new operation will re-open as Rugby Architectural Building Products effective today. The product offering of the new Rugby location will include Nevamar brand high pressure laminate, Chemcraft industrial wood coatings, a full-line of architectural panel and hardwood lumber products, Staron brand solid surfacing, Rugby brand stainless steel sinks, and cabinet hardware.
NYI Building Products, Cliffwood, NJ, continues in its leadership role in the market focusing upon caulks, sealants, adhesives and silicones.
