Alamy Mergers & Acquisitions are a way to strengthen your position in the roofing industry
Acquisition of Ohio-based Champion Windows follows the addition of fellow in-state company Universal Windows Direct.

Great Day Improvements, LLC announced it acquired Champion Windows to its portfolio of direct-to-consumer brands of home improvement products and services. 

Great Day Improvements is the parent company of Patio Enclosures, Stanek Windows, APEX Energy Solutions, Hartshorn Custom Contracting, and most recently Universal Windows Direct. 

Champion Windows is a leading direct-to-consumer company headquartered in Sharonville, Ohio outside of Cincinnati.

Great Day Improvements led a coordinated effort to transform its business by bringing Champion Windows into its family of brands following the addition of Universal Windows Direct.

“So much has happened in the last two months and we are thrilled that both Champion Windows and Universal Windows Direct could be added to our company," said Michael Hoy, CEO of Great Day Improvements. "Great Day Improvements was built by entrepreneurs and continues to have the entrepreneurial mindset that focuses on a never-ending drive for improvement and serving customers. Both Champion and Universal have this mindset and are perfect partners going forward."

“We believe the moves we’ve made in the last few months will enable us to create a home improvement company with the scale and scope to successfully serve the direct-to-consumer business model on a national basis,” said Ed Weinfurtner, executive chairman of GDI.

“For more than six decades, we’ve built quality products backed by excellent customer service, and Great Day Improvements has those same qualities,” added Todd Dickson, CEO of Champion Windows. “As the direct-to-consumer industry in the home improvement marketplace continues to mature, Great Day Improvements is the right partner at the right time to position Champion for continued growth and success."

Hoy will lead the combined companies, and Dickson will continue to lead Champion’s executive team.
