Arch to No Longer Manufacture Mirror; Will Continue to Fabricate
March 21, 2011

Arch Aluminum & Glass Co. in Tamarac, Fla., will no longer manufacture mirror and plans to cease production of its Fort Pierce, Fla., mirror line by the end of this month. The company had previously stopped producing mirror at its Bettendorf, Iowa, plant last November.

Ben Thomas, director of strategic marketing for Arch, told USGNN.com™ that while the company may no longer be manufacturing mirror, it will continue in the mirror market.

“Arch will very much be staying in the mirror business,” says Thomas. “Arch is one of the largest suppliers of fabricated mirror in the country and we continue to see this as an opportunity to be able to provide a complete package to our growing fabricator base. We will be buying our mirror from fully integrated suppliers and doing any fabrication required.”
