Kohler Co. has acquired Englefield Bathroomware, New Zealand's largest and Australia's second largest manufacturer of acrylic bathroom fixtures, for an undisclosed sum. Most of Englefield's innovative acrylic shower enclosures, baths, spa baths, vanities and accessories will be rebranded as Kohler products. The business will operate within Kohler Co.'s kitchen and bath group. "The Kohler and Englefield names are synonymous with innovative product design and quality, which makes this acquisition a very good fit," said David Kohler, Kohler Co.'s group president -- kitchen and bath group. "Together Kohler and Englefield now give consumers in Australia, New Zealand and nations in the Pacific more choices and more options for improving the level of gracious living in their lives. Furthermore, both companies are family run, privately-held entities, making a 'business-as-usual' transition easy for customers, suppliers and employees."
