DALLAS, TX (June 28, 2012) — AVTEQ, Inc., a leading manufacturer of videoconferencing and telemedicine carts, finalized its acquisition of San Antonio-based furniture maker KLN Steel Products Co. and its two sister companies, Dehler Manufacturing Inc. and Furniture by Thurston Inc.
“We’re excited about the acquisition,” said John O’Donnell, AVTEQ Vice President. “We’re in similar business, so it makes sense for our growth.” With this acquisition, AVTEQ will significantly expand its U.S. manufacturing capacity and increase revenue to a projected 60 million.
KLN Steel Products was established over 40 years ago in San Antonio and manufactures furniture for the institutional metal dormitory market. Furniture by Thurston was founded in 1980 in Grass Valley, CA, and manufactures furniture for the commercial wood market. They each have a great reputation with customers in their respective markets and AVTEQ is excited to apply its special style of innovation and flexibility to both companies.
