Oldcastle Glass Acquires Texas Wall Systems Inc.

Oldcastle Glass, headquartered in Santa Monica, Calif., has announced that it has acquired Dallas-based Texas Wall Systems Inc., a provider of high-performance curtainwall systems and engineering services for commercial, institutional and multi-story condominium construction markets.

Texas Wall Systems will become part of Oldcastle Glass' engineered products division, which was created by incorporating several Oldcastle Glass companies into one unit. Included in the new division are Fulton Windows, Southwest Aluminum Systems and Oldcastle Glass Retail Storefronts.

"Texas Wall Systems is a very attractive acquisition and is an ideal fit within our new Engineered Products division," said Ted Hathaway, chief executive officer of Oldcastle Glass. "It is a superb company that is well-positioned for growth. This acquisition significantly broadens our product offering."

"Oldcastle Glass provides Texas Wall Systems with a depth of capabilities and financial resources to draw upon," said Larry Long, president of Texas Wall Systems. "This partnership will strengthen our company as we enhance our product offerings, further improve service levels and bring greater value to our customers."

Long, who has been with the company since 1981 will continue to serve as president of the company after the Oldcastle acquisition.
