Glasswerks, a full-service fabricator of architectural glass headquartered in South Gate, Calif., has acquired the glass manufacturing assets of Columbia Commercial Building Products and J.E. Berkowitz (JEB). Both companies were previously part of Consolidated Glass Holdings.
This acquisition marks the latest investment as Glasswerks solidifies its national presence. Through this purchase Glasswerks has added multiple tempering lines, insulating glass unit (IGU) lines, a laminated line, and substantial supporting assets to its current production. Continued expansion and investments have effectively made Glasswerks one of the largest privately owned custom glass fabricators west of the Mississippi.
Glasswerks currently operates in over 700,000 square feet of fabrication space across locations in Southgate, Temecula and Carson, Calif. This latest acquisition substantially adds to the company’s capacities, distribution, and overall foothold in the glass and glazing industry.
Commenting on the acquisition, Randy Steinberg, president, Glasswerks, says: “Strategic acquisitions allow us to continue to expand and improve our capacities and capabilities. The marketplace’s expectations and demands continue to grow and we intend to keep pace.”
