Glasswerks Acquires Assets of CCBP Glass Manufacturing and J.E. Berkowitz

Southern California-based Glasswerks LA Inc., a full-service fabricator of architectural glass, has acquired the glass fabrication assets of Columbia Commercial Building Products (CCBP) and J.E. Berkowitz (JEB). Both companies were previously part of Consolidated Glass Holdings (CGH).

This acquisition marks the latest investment as the company solidifies its national presence. Through this purchase, Glasswerks has added multiple tempering lines, insulating glass (IGU) lines, a laminated line and substantial supporting assets to its current production. Glasswerks is one of the largest privately-owned custom glass fabricators west of the Mississippi after continuous expansions and investments, according to the announcement.

Glasswerks currently operates in more than 700,000 square feet of fabrication space across locations in Southgate, Temecula, and Carson, Calif. According to the announcement, this latest acquisition substantially adds to the company’s capacities, distribution, and overall foothold in the glass and glazing industry.

“Strategic acquisitions allow us to continue to expand and improve our capacities and capabilities,” said Randy Steinberg, president of Glasswerks. “The marketplace’s expectations and demands continue to grow and we intend to keep pace.”

The announcement comes days after former employees filed a complaint against JEB and CGH, which alleged violations against the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. Additionally, at the beginning of April, Frameless Hardware Co. announced it had acquired CCBP’s doors, storefront and curtainwall fabrication assets from CGH.
