Arch Aluminum & Glass To Open Two New Locations
Arch Aluminum and Glass of Tamarac, Fla., plans to further expand its company with two new plant openings planned for 2007. The first, the 33rd in the Arch operation, will be in Rogers, Minn., approximately 30 minutes north of Minneapolis.
Work has begun inside a 72,000-square-foot, full-service facility, which will offer tempering, insulating, spandrel and the company’s complete line of architectural aluminum products. The new plant will specialize in processing soft-coat glass and have CNC equipment to produce heavy glass for shower doors and partitions. The location is expected to open in Rogers mid summer.
The second new location will be in the Nashville area. Currently, Arch is going through the final steps in closing on its new location, but expects to be open for business during the fourth quarter of this year. The Nashville operation will follow the same blueprint as the Rogers plant and will feature the same full-service offerings. www.archaluminum.net
