Oldcastle Glass® Acquires Floral Glass Group

Oldcastle Glass has announced the acquisition of the Floral Glass Group, a glass fabricator and distributor serving the Northeast United States. With three locations, Hauppauge, N.Y., Cheshire, Conn., and East Rutherford, N.J., Chuck Kaplanek, president of the Floral Glass Group, said all operations would become Oldcastle companies.

While Floral Glass has been family-owned and operated for 49 years, Kaplanek is optimistic about the acquisition.

"It brings the ability for us to draw on the expertise of Oldcastle, and they felt we were of paramount importance in what they are doing in the Northeast," said Kaplanek. "Oldcastle will allow us to run our operations as we have in the past; we've been successful in the past and they don't want to change that. But it gives us new strength and allows Floral to have a new and significantly improved five-year plan."
