USGNN Original StoryGlasswerks LA Relocates to New Facility
March 27, 2009

Located in South Gate, Calif., Glasswerks LA Inc. recently relocated into a new corporate facility. At 180,000 square feet, the new location is three times larger than the previous location and features several pieces of glass fabrication equipment, including four tempering furnaces.

"We were out of capacity in our old facility and were looking at ways we could become more efficient in our operations," Ed Rosengrant, Glasswerks' vice president of sales and marketing, told™. "In our new location we expect both quality and service to improve greatly thanks to the new equipment and the linear process we have here."

In addition, the facility features a new environmental controlled laminating line, Lisec insulating line, three automated cutting lines and a number of CNC edgers and polishers.

Rosengrant says the company also intends to add another tempering line as well as additional CNC edgers.

"We're also looking to go from $60 million in sales to $80 million within the next two years, and we have our eye on markets that are starting to percolate, such as solar.
