Americana Building Products to Expand and Purchase PW Athletic Company

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

A Salem manufacturing company is expanding with the purchase of a Mesa, Arizona company.  Americana Building Products, Incorporated has announced the purchase of PW Athletic Company.  The 98-year-old company manufactures park and recreation furnishings such as sport systems for basketball, baseball, volleyball, soccer and football, athletic bleachers, benches, trash receptacles, bike racks and bollards.  

The Vice President of Finance and Marketing for Americana Melanie Johnson says the new lines will complement Americana's existing products that include park shelters, dugouts, walkway covers, residential awnings and patio covers.  The PW Athletic Company products will be offered nationwide to current customers.  Products will continue to be manufactured in both Arizona and in Americana's location in the west side Salem Industrial Park.  

Americana has also announced that Michelle Barbee of Salem will be joining Americana's executive team in February.  Johnson says her accounting and marketing skills will be a valuable asset to Americana as they expand into new territories.
