Tri City Glass & Door Announces Recent Acquisition
January 11, 2010

Tri City Glass & Door in Appleton, Wis., announced that it purchased Oldcastle Glass Green Bay on December 28, 2009. According to the announcement, the acquisition increases sales by 50 percent and the employee base to almost 100 people. The company says it will continue to offer the same level of quality and service that customers have grown accustomed to from both companies.

Chuck Bender, president of Tri City Glass & Door tells™ that the decision to purchase the operations was a good investment for his business.

"We had been looking for a new venture and saw this as a viable option," says Bender. "The capabilities of the two companies were very much in line, as we both focus on aluminum and glass fabrication and distribution for the commercial, retail and residential markets; Tri City Glass & Door is also involved in automotive glass replacement."

Bender explains that Tri City Glass & Door is focused on servicing the state of Wisconsin, and at this time there are no plans to expand that reach.

"I think we can now do an even better job of serving our same markets and areas," says Bender.

And, even though the construction industry is continuing to struggle, in explaining his business strategy, Bender says his company simply does "the opposite of what others do and that has worked well for us."

He adds, "The economic downturn will not last forever and we all need to continue to invest in the future and not focus on the past."
