Oldcastle Glass Launches New Commercial Projects Group

Oldcastle Glass is launching a new commercial projects group that will supply architectural glass products throughout North America. To facilitate this initiative the company is constructing a $7.5 million glass fabrication plant in Wright City, Mo. The 65,000-sqaure-foot plant will be on 15 acres and employee more than 100 people,
"We chose Wright City because it is centrally located and provides a favorable economic platform to support large, architectural glazing projects," said Ted Hathaway, chief executive officer. "It also enables us to draw upon the capabilities of our existing manufacturing locations."

Chuck Kaplanek, who previously served as president of Floral Glass, now part of Oldcastle Glass, will lead the new commercial projects group. Other company executives will include Mary Carol Witry, vice president; Jeff Jensen, general manager; Doug Zacharias, director of business development; and Rick Wright, director of technical services. The team will be supported by the following senior architectural sales representatives: Ron Spellich, Cathy Finney, Leslie Sadler and John Krajewski, as well as technical service managers Robert Williams and Matt Manning.

Oldcastle has more than 45 operations serving every major city in the United States and Canada.
