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.
