JM Family Enterprises, Inc., a privately held company with over $18 billion in revenue and more than 5,000 associates, recently made another significant investment in its growth strategy with the acquisition of Rollease Acmeda, a leading specialty distributor of window covering systems.
“Our goal is to strategically leverage our strong culture and core competencies to ensure continued success for Rollease Acmeda and its partners,” said Ron Coombs, president of JM Family Holdings, which supports the execution of the JM Family’s growth strategy and acquisition efforts. “Rollease Acmeda is an excellent fit for our growing JM Family Holdings division. They are market leaders investing in long-term relationships, are customer-centric and committed to innovation, all things which are important to us at JM Family. We are excited to welcome the Rollease Acmeda associates to our family, and to support their continued growth efforts.”
Rollease Acmeda was established in 1980 and is headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, with approximately 270 associates across the U.S. and Australia, plus a small presence in Europe, and serves thousands of customers in over 40 countries around the world.
“This is a proud moment for the entire team at Rollease Acmeda, validating the incredible amount of effort and skill invested in building a market-leading franchise in our industry,” said Derick Marsh, CEO of Rollease Acmeda. “We are extremely excited to be part of JM Family and look forward to our bright future together.”
With this acquisition, JM Family now has three distinct and independent operating platforms under JM Family Holdings: the JM Franchise Platform which includes Home Franchise Concepts, JM Financial Services Platform with Futura Title & Escrow, and now the JM Specialty Distribution Platform with Rollease Acmeda.
JM Family Holdings is strategically positioned to make long-term investments and acquisitions that will position companies for continued success. JM Family Holdings will continue to seek additional acquisitions to grow existing platforms and to add more platforms as the company enters new industries, Coombs said.
