MTH Industries of Chicago has announced that it has purchased the assets of
E.J. Hayes Glass and Mirror of Skokie, Ill.
"It just made sense at this point in our development as we continue to
expand in both contract glazing and service work," said MTH president Lyle
R. Hill. "Hayes has loyal customers, a great reputation and a wonderful staff
so it was good fit with our current business units."
"After 53 years in business, it was time for me to slow down," said
Elmer J. Hayes, who founded the company in 1952. "I've always admired the
way MTH Industries conducts business and I thought it was a good opportunity for
our employees to work for a first-class operation," he added.
The terms of the purchase were not disclosed, but it is known that Hayes will
continue to serve the company in a sales capacity.
