Security Door & Hardware Co. and Security Builders Supply Co. have joined the CIH family!
Indianapolis, IN, April 17, 2020.
CIH (“Central Indiana Hardware, Inc.”), a leading specialty distributor of Division 8 commercial door systems, Division 10 accessories and operable partitions, and Division 28 access systems integration, acquired two divisions of Bradley, IL-based Security Lumber: Security Door & Hardware Co. of Urbana, IL and Security Builders Supply Co. of Oswego, IL. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Established in 1946, Security Lumber grew to become the premier supplier to leading contractors in the Chicagoland area. In 1967, Security Lumber opened its commercial hardware and door division eventually expanding to four locations throughout IL.
Security Door & Hardware (SDH) and Security Builders Supply (SBS) provide full Division 8 commercial door and hardware products through four IL locations. SDH’s Urbana and Springfield, IL offices are led by Greg Rolnicki, VP and General Manager, where he has grown the business through great customer service and teamwork for the last 26 years. SBS’s Oswego and Rockford, IL offices are led by Tim Johnson, VP and General Manager, where he has grown and managed the business for the last 30 years and has been with the company since 1981.
The companies will continue to operate under the Security Door & Hardware and Security Builders Supply names as divisions of CIH. Both Greg and Tim will continue in their current positions and will report directly to CIH President & CEO Ron Couch.
“We are excited to welcome Security Door & Hardware and Security Builders Supply to the CIH family,” said Ron Couch, President & CEO of CIH. “As a company focused on delivering exceptional customer service through innovative programs, we are excited to support the SDH & SBS teams with resources to expand opportunities and accelerate growth in their market.”
“Being part of the Security family has been a fulfilling and educational part of my career and I am proud of what our team has accomplished. I now look forward to a new family team at CIH to grow and expand services to our longtime customers,” said Tim Johnson. Greg Rolnicki added, “I have been a part of a great team of individuals and am very proud of what we have been able to accomplish together. We welcome the opportunity to provide additional offerings to our clients over time and are confident that we will improve on the excellent service they have come to expect. Becoming a part of CIH will allow us to better serve our customers in all aspects of the business.” Russ Benson, a member of the founding family said, “We are proud of our accomplishments and feel that CIH will only expand on the legacy our family began.”
This acquisition expands the CIH Team to over 200 staff members, in seven offices, across three Midwestern states providing greater geographic reach. CIH’s focus has always been and will continue to be providing exceptional customer service.
