Nation’s Best Acquires Advanced Window Systems

Expands Access to Premium Windows and Doors


July 1, 2022, DALLAS, Texas – Nation’s Best has added Advanced Window Systems (AWS),
one of the region’s top providers of premier windows and doors, to its family of businesses.
AWS maintains a large warehouse south of Dallas and a showroom in the Dallas Design District
where they meet with customers and suppliers.

“We’re excited to welcome AWS into Nation’s Best,” said Chris Miller, President & CEO of
Nation’s Best. “While our acquisitions to date have been focused on home centers and
hardware stores, AWS provides us a unique opportunity to enhance our window and door
offerings across all our locations nationwide, while capturing even more sales in the Dallas-Fort
Worth market.”

AWS has been providing high end residential and commercial windows and doors to contractors
and homeowners for new construction and renovation projects for more than 20 years. In the
transition to Nation’s Best, owner Steve Johnson will retire but his sons Dustin and Seth and
son-in-law Mitch Raymond will continue in their leadership roles in the business. “AWS has
done an outstanding job of being a leader in the market when it comes to quality and service for
premium construction and renovation projects,” said Miller. “Now, we’ll be able to leverage their
expertise and vendor relationships in the door and window product segments while extending
their reach to all our other locations. We see tremendous opportunities to grow the business
across the Nation’s Best platform, strengthening all of our individual brands as we drive more
sales across the country.”

“I first heard about Nation’s Best through my connection with Groom & Sons’ Home Center,
another acquisition of theirs,” said Steve Johnson. “I learned that they share the same values as
our family business, putting our team and customers first. I’m confident that our move to
Nation’s Best will put AWS and its associates in an even greater position for growth.”
As part of Nation’s Best’s strategy, Advanced Window Systems will maintain operations under
their existing name with its key leadership team overseeing company operations alongside
Nation’s Best, which will provide the strategic and financial support necessary to drive optimal
growth and profitability.
