Oldcastle Glass® Acquires Florida Laminated and Tempered Glass Co.

Oldcastle Glass has acquired Miami-based Florida Laminated & Tempered Glass, a provider of laminated and tempered glass products in the Southern Florida regional construction market.

Florida Laminated and Tempered Glass occupies 75,000 square feet of manufacturing space and has the newest glass fabrication equipment. It will become a satellite operation of Oldcastle Glass Miami, located less than two miles away.

"Driven by the implementation of building codes, hurricane-resistant glass is the fastest growing segment of the architectural glass market," said Ted Hathaway, chief executive officer, Oldcastle Glass. "This acquisition significantly increases our laminated glass and tempering capacity in Southern Florida and provides a strong manufacturing base for our signature hurricane-resistant product, StormGlass™."

The incremental capacity afforded by the acquisition supports Oldcastle Glass' objective of offering its customers the shortest lead times and highest quality architectural glass products in the industry.
