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.
