Genesis Products reported it acquired Virginia-based drawer-making specialist BHK of America for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition will integrate BHK’s 46 years of manufacturing in drawer components with Genesis Products’ 20 years of expertise as a supplier of laminated panels, wood components and custom molded solutions used in RV manufacturing.

“The combined strengths of Genesis and BHK will enhance our product offerings and service to the residential kitchen cabinet, furniture and closet industries,” said Jon Wenger, CEO, Genesis Products. “Both teams have had a longstanding focus on serving customers across multiple industries.”

Added Reiner Kamp, CEO, BHK of America, “The alignment of our company goals and expertise in drawer component manufacturing creates a very exciting opportunity both for our team members and distributors.”

According to Wenger, the initial plan for the acquisition is to maintain the existing BHK leadership and sales team.

Genesis Products, which posted sales of $346 million in 2022, currently ranks No. 34 on the FDMC300 list of top North American wood-product companies. The company operates 11 manufacturing plants, including one No. 4 plant in Keysville, VA, approximately 40 miles from the BHK facility.

In addition to an established network of distributors, the BHK company comes to the Genesis brand as an expert in vinyl-wrapped drawer parts, including its linear miter-fold option, which it introduced 45 years ago from Europe.
