Founded in 2008, Infinity manufactures and distributes premium floor and wall coverings designed to withstand even the most demanding environments. Infinity's Luxury Woven Vinyl (LWV) features a unique heavy-traffic-rated, vinyl backing that is ideal for indoor and outdoor use on a variety of surfaces. All company’s products are UV-stable, resistant to fading, and include antimicrobial technology. 

“We are excited about the addition of Infinity's products to our growing suite of specialty products,” said Jeff Register, Twitchell's CEO. “The acquisition of Infinity expands our reach within the quickly growing marine and RV markets and gives Infinity added resources to continue innovation and expand its market penetration.”

Continuing growth trajectory

According to the company, LWV initially solidified its niche in the marine industry through its products’ unique design, quality and performance characteristics. The manufacturer then expanded into the recreational vehicle and aerospace industries where woven vinyl was an entirely new product concept. Infinity's product line quickly grew to twenty collections in over 200 colours.

 “The addition of Infinity is another example of Highlander's ongoing strategy of executing strategic add-on acquisitions that expand our portfolio companies' product offerings and market share,” commented Mike Nicolais, Chairman of Twitchell and President of Highlander Partners.

“Twitchell is a great platform that is well positioned to continue supplementing its organic growth with M&A opportunities. Like Twitchell, Infinity takes a customer-centred approach, providing customers with superior service and customized solutions, and the two organizations are a great cultural fit. We're looking forward to partnering with Infinity and continuing its strong growth trajectory.”
