COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Installed Building Products, Inc.

Founded in 2006, Blind Ambitions has multiple locations throughout the southeast.

"Blind Ambitions' customer base and experienced management team will create immediate value for IBP and provides a nearly $20 million platform to meaningfully increase these product offerings in our current markets and throughout our national network of branches. We are excited about growing our window blinds business, and our pipeline of potential acquisitions remains robust as we continue to look at opportunities that expand IBP's footprint, product offerings and end markets."
