In a strategic move to enhance its capabilities in serving professional customers, home improvement retailer The Home Depot has finalised an agreement to acquire International Designs Group (IDG) from private equity firm Mill Point Capital.
The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
The Home Depot said it positions the company to tap into the $475bn professional market.
Headquartered in Decatur, Georgia, IDG operates showrooms and fabrication facilities across the East Coast and Southeast US.
Strengthening professional services
Construction Resources, a key subsidiary of IDG, specialises in offering design-oriented surfaces, appliances and architectural products tailored for professional contractors engaged in renovation, remodelling, residential home building and multi-family projects.
The acquisition leverages Construction Resources’ expertise in managing complex, cross-category professional projects, complementing The Home Depot’s scale, product authority and distribution capabilities.
