Trulite Acquires RF Supply

Architectural glass and aluminum fabricator Trulite Glass & Aluminum Solutions announced it purchased Bradenton, Fla.-based R.F. Supply Inc.

RF Supply is a regional fabricator and distributor of glass products for architectural, industrial, commercial and custom applications. Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

The purchase marks Trulite’s sixth acquisition since April 2011. With the transaction, Trulite will expand its presence in the Florida market with tempered, insulating, and mirrored fabricated offerings. Additionally, the RF Supply product offering will include laminated and Guardian/PPG certified products.

“Our continued pursuit of operational excellence has positioned us well to meet the rapidly increasing demand for quality fabricated products,” says Paul Schmitz, chief executive officer of Trulite. “State of the art equipment additions and upgrades, organic growth as well as strategic acquisitions are allowing us to meet this demand and better serve the industry.”

The company will retain RF supply general manager Michael Hoelle. “We expect little to change for the current RF Supply customers after the acquisition,” says Trulite executive vice president Paul Mahedy.
