Glass® Acquires Antamex International Inc.
Oldcastle Glass® has announced that it has acquired Toronto-based
Antamex International Inc., a privately-held supplier of high-performance
curtain wall systems and engineering design services for commercial,
institutional and multi-story condominium construction markets.
Antamex will become the cornerstone of Oldcastle Glass® Envelope,
a comprehensive range of architectural glass, operable windows,
storefronts, doors and curtain wall products designed to close the
building envelope. By narrowing the number of vendors required in
building construction projects, Oldcastle Glass® Envelope will
allow architects, developers and glazing contractors to reduce inherent
risks, minimize costs, and close the building envelope more quickly
"By virtue of its extensive engineering design capability,
outstanding market reputation, and international project portfolio,
Antamex participates in commercial construction projects from their
earliest stage," said Ted Hathaway, chief executive officer
(CEO) of Oldcastle Glass®.
" Oldcastle Glass® provides Antamex with significant financial
resources and substantial capabilities in high-performance architectural
glass products and services throughout North America. This partnership
will strengthen our company as we extend our geographic reach, enhance
our product offerings and bring greater value to our customers,"
said Elio Toffoli, Antamex's current president and (CEO), who will
continue to lead the company after the acquisition.
