Pulp Studio Inc. announced that its sister company Vitracor, doing business as California Glass Bending, is merging into the Pulp Studio operations. All three, now under the Pulp Studio umbrella, will be located in a new 150,000-square-foot facility in Gardena, Calif.
The merger and move will be completed by the end of January.
According to a company release, the merger and new facility cap off Pulp Studio’s 20th anniversary year with a $13.5 million investment that includes one of the largest chemical tempering tanks in the world, high-speed oversized direct-to-glass printing, oversized laminating and a new oversized bent and flat tempering furnace.
“I think it is safe to say that Pulp Studio will have the only facility in the world where, under one roof, you will be able to print, bend, slump and temper glass of all shapes and sizes on this large scale,” says Pulp Studio founder Bernard lax.
In 2012, Pulp Studio bought California Glass Bending to combine specialty glass and bending under the same roof. In 2014 it built an 8,000-square-foot facility to produce Switchlite Privacy Glass.
