Pulp Studio to Acquire California Glass Bending
March 16, 2012

Pulp Studio Inc. of Los Angeles is in the process of acquiring California Glass Bending Inc. of Wilmington, Calif. The acquisition will be final by the month's end, according to Pulp Studio. The two companies have collaborated for the last eight years, according to a Pulp Studio release.

No employees will be affected in the transition, and additional hires will possibly be made over the coming months, according to the release. The addition of the California Glass Bending facility, as well as the expansion of Pulp's second facility , will give Pulp Studio a total of three facilities with just more than 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space and close to 100 employees

"Kelly Green, the owner of California Glass Bending, has been in the industry for many years and now has the opportunity to take life a little easier," says Bernard Lax, CEO of Pulp Studio. "Our two companies have long worked together on many projects. The synergy of the two facilities makes this acquisition a natural step for all parties concerned."

Pulp officials say the acquisition will enable both companies to offer a wider range of products. There will be no immediate change in how the facilities operate and the customers of both facilities will experience no changes.

"Transactions like these can potentially be uncomfortable when the principles are also friends, but we both worked together to make this one as simple and smooth as possible," Lax says. "It is our intention to have Kelly remain involved with our operation as long as he wants. His talents will be a great help to us."

Officials at California Glass Bending were unavailable for comment at press time.
