Martin Inc. sells Townsend Door Hardware

Martin Inc. announced the sale of Townsend Door Hardware and Systems to Brice Meeks, who will create Townsend Door, LLC and Townsend Systems, LLC.

Townsend DHS was a division of the Townsend Supply Company which Martin acquired in 1998. For the past 21 years, Townsend DHS has operated as a stand-alone division of Martin focused on the construction market for hollow metal doors, frames and hardware and systems integration of life safety products.

“We believed it was time for Martin to focus on our primary strategy of Industrial, Safety, Fasteners and Integrated Supply,” said Douglas Ruggles, co-owner, Martin Inc. “The team at Townsend has serviced the West Tennessee market for over 45 years with these products and services. Townsend is positioned to succeed with this new ownership who is focused solely on the construction market.”

Meeks also owns Delta Electric Inc., an electrical contractor, and Progressive Alarm Technology in Jackson, Tennessee. “The addition of Townsend will create a dominant position in the alarm and systems integration market," said Ruggles. “Meeks’ knowledge of the construction market will provide Townsend Door Hardware the leadership and connections to thrive.”
