USGNN Original StoryCRL in Negotiations to Purchase Sommer & Maca, Sources Report

Los Angeles-based C.R. Laurence is in negotiations to purchase Cicero, Ill.-based Sommer & Maca, sources have told USGNN.com/USGlass magazine. Sommer & Maca will cease to operate under its current name as of March 20, and employees will be laid off, according to a memo provided to company employees yesterday afternoon.

Officials Sommer & Maca were not able to confirm this.

A spokesperson for C.R. Laurence Co. Inc., commented as follows, “These types of erroneous statements only result in upsetting employees and do not serve the interests of the glass industry. If and when companies are negotiating,
false information from anonymous sources has no news value. Statements made in yesterday's USGNN report were untrue.”
