Mahwah, N.J.-based Frost King (Thermwell Products Co. Inc.) has acquired PortaSeal LLC of Morristown N.J. 

PortSeal makes weathersealing products, including Gara-Seal, a rigid vinyl strip with a flexible vinyl flange, which seals the top and sides of garage doors.

Both companies in the transaction are privately owned and operated: PortaSeal by Stanley Garbowy; and Thermwell by David and Mel Gerstein, twin sons of one of the two founding brothers.

Home improvement industry veteran Mel Gerstein, co-owner of Mahwah, N.J.-based Thermwell Products, is at it again. His holiday cards containing his unique brand of political humor are hitting mailboxes all across the country. 

Gerstein estimates thousands of people are on his holiday card list, including the office of Home Channel News, which received its card earlier this week. What makes Gerstein tradition unusual is that he draws his own card, and he's been doing it since the mid-1960s.
