Personal Touch Glass Joins Hartung Glass Industries
September 12, 2011

Hartung Glass Industries in Seattle, and Personal Touch Glass, a Lodi, Calif., subsidiary of Glasswerks L.A. Inc., have announced that the companies have signed a definitive agreement under which Hartung has acquired Personal Touch Glass, a northern Californian fabricator. Specializing in fast lead times for residential and commercial insulating glass units, Personal Touch Glass will operate as part of Hartung Glass Industries effective immediately. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"Hartung Glass is very proud of our history in California with full fabrication and tempering furnaces in Sacramento and Union City as well as a joint Holcam-Agalite manufacturing and distribution facility in Anaheim," says Hartung President and owner Nick Sciola. "Since a majority of PTG's products have less than a three day lead time, the addition of Personal Touch Glass will complement our existing lines and tremendously enhance our ability to better serve the region. The addition of PTG is very exciting as the company has a highly experienced and talented in-place management team, skilled workforce and an existing fleet of trucks delivering to customers throughout northern California and Nevada."

The Personal Touch acquisition, Hartung's third acquisition in 20 months, advances the company's mission of controlled growth and to increase its presence as the leading supplier of fabricated glass products on the West Coast. Hartung Glass Industries continues to explore additional cities and opportunities for expanding their footprint in the West Coast market.
