Nudo Products Inc. has announced the acquisition of High Standard Inc., a full-service exterior architectural panel manufacturer and fabricator. High Standard's line of window in-fill and exterior cladding panels complements Nudo’s broad range of interior wall and ceiling products. The combined companies will provide the building and construction industries an unparalleled offering of innovative, high quality interior and exterior panels. In addition, Nudo customers will now have access to porcelain-faced panels produced by High Standard.  

Nudo Products CEO, Darryl Rosser, commented, “High Standard's long established reputation for quality architectural panels is well known within the industry. We welcome the knowledgeable and dedicated High Standard Team members to Nudo. Customers should continue to engage with their sales representatives and High Standard team members either in Jaffrey or Pembroke as before. We’re pleased that Tony Dalpos, a long-time veteran of the industry, will be leading our business development activity in this segment of the market.”

Len Farrell, Nudo’s senior vice president of Strategic Development, added, “Nudo has long been a laminated panel leader in markets such as agriculture and food processing, sign substrates and transportation, clean rooms and telecommunications. The architectural panel experience High Standard brings to Nudo will add another key market to Nudo's core.”

The combined strengths of the two companies mean a turnkey solution, from interior to exterior, for customers throughout the U.S. Synergies in new product development, logistics, marketing, architectural specifications and operations will enhance customer experience in 2014 and beyond.
