Dover Corp. (NYSE: DOV) has purchased Anthony International, a maker of commercial glass refrigerator and freezer doors, for $602.5 million.

The deal marks a quick exit for Avista Capital Partners. Anthony had spent just 17 months with the New York-based private equity firm, which acquired the Sylmar, Calif.-based target from Aurora Capital Group in June 2011 for an undisclosed price. American Securities sold Anthony to Aurora in 2004 for roughly $121.4 million.
