Trulite to Consolidate Locations
August 9, 2011

By Sahely Mukerji

Trulite Glass & Aluminum in Tamarac, Fla., will consolidate sites belonging to its recently merged businesses: the former Vitro America, United Glass Corp. and Arch Aluminum & Glass.

"Consolidating the three companies involves the reduction of overlapping footprints," says Ben Thomas, director of strategic marketing for Trulite. "We are eliminating redundancies by evaluating both their sites and footprints and making our selection based on capabilities and cost to run the location. There will be fewer total sites than the three companies had on their own, but the same geography will be covered. Obvious consolidations will occur, but our customers will have the same coverage.

"This is an ongoing project and as such many of the answer to those questions are still being worked out," Thomas says. "For both that reason and [because] it is centric to how we run our operations I am unable to elaborate further."
