Dovetail Brands Acquires Grabill Cabinets
Fort Wayne-based Dovetail Brands, an affiliate of Ambassador Enterprises, has acquired Grabill Cabinets in Allen County. While financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, Dovetail says former Grabill owners David Carnahan and Martin Heiny will continue in leadership roles.
Dovetail Chief Executive Officer Seth Nash says all Grabill employees were given the option to remain with the company. He says both Dovetail and Grabill are looking to add workers as well, though a specific number was not provided.
Grabill Cabinets employs more than 130 employees in northeast Indiana.
“Our number one goal was to ensure this 75-year-old business continues on,” Heiney said in a news release. “We wanted to find a local buyer who was familiar with Grabill Cabinets and deeply connected to the area. Someone most interested in continuing what was started, who truly cared about Grabill’s employees. We’ve found that buyer—Ambassador Enterprises, a local legacy-minded private equity firm.”
Dovetail Brands also owns Dutch Made Custom Cabinetry.
