Sydney doors manufacturer gets foot-hold in lucrative US building market

Sydney manufacturer of hardware for sliding and folding doors, the Brio Group, has gained a foothold in the lucrative US building market and opened a new subsidiary, Brio USA Inc.

The move will allow the business to launch its Brio Weatherfold range of architectural hardware for exterior folding doors in the US market.

“In May this year, we took the next exciting step in our growth, registering the subsidiary Brio USA Inc., located in Rochester, N.Y.," said Styli Pelekanos, Brio Group general manager. 

"From this location, we will supply the high quality range of Brio products coast to coast in the states."

Brio operates manufacturing facilities in Sydney and the UK. Its headquarters is in Melbourne.

Brio has appointed Kevin O’Connor as president to manage U.S. operations.

"With 30 years of sales and marketing experience in the U.S. fenestration market, Kevin will be able to provide our customers with the service-focused approach and strong technical support that sets us apart from our competitors throughout the world," Pelekanos said.
