NGS acquires CHB Industries

NGS announced today that they have acquired CHB Industries (CHB), further expanding their sales and operations teams into the New York and Chicago markets. The acquisition is the first in the company’s history, but more are planned for 2022. 

“This acquisition is unparalleled in the history of the window film industry,” states James Beale, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of NGS. “It combines the fastest growing and largest window film company – NGS – with the most storied and reputable company in the Northeast and Midwest – CHB. We are excited to add CHB’s team, resources, and thirty years of industry expertise to NGS. Separately, we were good. Together, we are better.” 

“We are excited to add CHB’s team, resources, and thirty years of industry expertise to NGS. Separately, we were good. Together, we are better.” 

-James Beale, Managing Partner, NGS

Adds Carol Borow, Owner and President, CHB: “NGS’ culture of professionalism, reliability, and responsiveness, combined with their mission to make buildings better fits perfectly with what I’ve spent years creating at CHB.” Adds Dan Venet, Executive Vice President, CHB, “We are thrilled to join forces with NGS and create something unprecedented in the industry.” 

Founded in 2009 by James Beale and Patrick Coyle, NGS has grown to become the industry-leading dealer-installer of 3M™ Window Film, Riot Glass™, Printed Graphics, and Signage. Offering security, energy, and branding retrofits for buildings, the company’s mission is to protect people and property, preserve the planet, and create beauty by making buildings better.  

CHB was founded over 30 years ago by Borow and Venet with the vision that building owners, property managers, office tenants, and homeowners needed services that would make their properties safer, more energy-efficient and attractive, and less expensive to manage. The company grew to become the most trusted and reputable window film company in New York and Chicago markets. 

Beale and Coyle have assumed leadership responsibilities and management of CHB. Borow and Venet will stay on for six months to help with the transition. 

The transaction closed on December 30, 2021.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
