Vernon Hills, IL – Würth Baer Supply Company has acquired J&G Machinery in Sanford, NC.
The acquisition closing was finalized in late July 2022. J&G Machinery will retain its strong brand name in the market and will become a division of IWF 2022 exhibitor Würth Baer Supply Company.
“The Würth organization is extremely pleased to add the J&G Machinery team to our expanding woodworking machinery portfolio,” says Würth Baer Supply Company CEO John Geraghty. “J&G’s great employees, years of woodworking expertise, and focused customer orientation will be a fantastic addition to the overall Würth brand.”
The addition of J&G Machinery will expand Würth’s woodworking machinery sales and service footprint to include the southeast United States. Both J&G Machinery owners John Johnson and Jerry Johnson (and all J&G employees) will continue to manage the day-to-day business just as it is operating today. J&G and its’ field sales team are ideally located to service the southeast United States’ cabinet, millwork, and furniture manufacturing market.
“Merging the Würth Baer Supply and J&G brands will allow us to expand our machinery sales and service offering in the Southeast,” says J&G’s John Johnson. “At the same time, this acquisition also allows J&G to solidify the future for our current employees who will continue to service our customers with all of our key partners.”
Last year Würth acquired Hermance Machinery, another major regional dealer/distributor.
