An Atlanta-based custom storage solutions company has acquired a South Carolina based company in the same line of business, as well as its sister company.

Artisan Custom Closets has merged with Carolina Closets and its sister brand in Georgia, Spacemakers Closets, creating a regional leader in custom storage solutions in the Southeast, according to an Artisan Custom Closets news release.

Artisan’s direct to consumer sales and marketing successes combined with Carolina Closets’ and Spacemakers’ diverse customer base — comprised of professional home builders, dealers, wholesalers and retail at their upscale design centers — provides market strength and diversity unparalleled in the Southeast, the release stated.

“The decision to merge is the result of careful consideration, strategic planning, and countless discussions between the leadership teams of both companies. We firmly believe that this merger will not only benefit our employees but also our valued customers. It also presents us with incredible opportunities for growth, innovation, and enhanced customer experiences,” said Matt Prewett, former vice president of sales and marketing for Spacemakers and Carolina Closets, now chief growth officer of the combined entity, in the release. “This merger is a testament to the remarkable dedication and hard work of our employees. Without their unwavering commitment to excellence, none of this would be possible. We are excited to embark on this journey together, as we shape the future of our industry and make a lasting impact.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The combined company will blanket the South with showrooms in Atlanta, Suwanee and Greensboro areas of Georgia, the Anderon and Greenville areas in South Carolina, as well as Asheville, N.C., and Nashville, according to the release. With two state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities strategically positioned, the company is poised to enjoy healthy, long-term growth as the brand expands further in the Southeast, the release stated.

“This merger marks a significant milestone for both our organizations and the industry. While we have been competitors for years, we have come to recognize the tremendous potential that lies in joining forces. By combining our expertise, resources, and talent, we are creating an even stronger and more dynamic entity that will set new standards in our industry,” said Lindsay Tillie, CEO of Artisan Custom Closets, in the release. “The merger will not affect the day-to-day operations of any of the companies, and all will continue to operate as usual during the transition period. Customers of all three businesses will receive the same level of service and attention to detail that they have come to expect.”
