June 8, 2010

United States Aluminum and AGC Glass Company - Building Products Fabrication Division announced a new strategic alliance that they say will strengthen each company's position as leading product manufacturers in the commercial glazing industry.

This alliance represents the next logical step for both organizations in their efforts to provide outstanding products, service and support to the commercial glazing industry. In the alliance, United States Aluminum will provide AGC with storefront, entrance systems and specialty systems (e.g. blast, hurricane impact) and United States Aluminum will represent various AGC glass products in certain markets.

Jim Cenname, United States Aluminum's executive vice president says, "The alliance is an opportunity for both companies to expand their sales reach. Both companies have strong sales coverage and distribution networks in North America that will benefit from our combined resources."

Steve Micheli, AGC Fabrication Division-vice president adds, "This program will strengthen our product portfolio and help us to drive our goal of becoming the preferred fabricator and solutions provider to our customers. It is a great opportunity to leverage the expertise and presence of the two organizations across the value chain and help customers with a competitive fenestration package."
