Bowerston, Ohio-based L.J. Smith acquired Georgia based Universal Stair Parts, a company specializing in custom manufacturing and distribution of stair parts.
Although the ownership will change, the name will remain the same and therefore will continue to provide to the market under Universal Stair Parts. “The joining of forces will give us a strong manufacturing and distribution foothold in the Southeast and therefore bring added capabilities, which will further strengthen our commitment to serve our customers,” said Craig Kurtz, president of L.J. Smith.
Founded in 1885, L.J. Smith Stair Systems describes itself as the largest manufacturer of stair parts in the country. The company serves all 50 states from nine distributions branches and four manufacturing centers.
