Elkay Merges Medallion with Westwood Unit

Oak Brook, IL Medallion Kitchens of Minnesota, Inc. and Westwood Custom Cabinetry, Inc., two of the wholly owned units in the Elkay Mfg. Co. cabinet group, have been merged into one operating unit, Elkay announced.
Elkay, headquartered here, said that the merger, effective Dec. 31, 2000, creates a new company, to be known as Medallion Cabinetry, Inc.

"The merger of these companies is a legal affirmation of the operating relationship that has existed since the acquisition of Westwood," said Stanley Bandur, president of the Elkay Cabinet Group. "Changing the name to Medallion Cabinetry, Inc. more clearly defines the products manufactured by the two
facilities," Bandur added.

Westwood, located in Salem, OR, has been managed by the Waconia, MN-based Medallion since its acquisition by Elkay in early 1998.

Elkay also owns Yorktowne Cabinets, Inc. and MasterCraft Inc.
