Consolidated Glass Holdings Inc., a manufacturer, fabricator, and distributor of high-performance glass and glazing products, has announced the formation of a new Eastern Division for Architectural Glass Fabrication and Specialty Products. This new division combines the capabilities and resources of Solar Seal in South Easton, Mass., Insuplane in Hamden, Conn. and Hawkins in Stafford, Va.

“These actions establish a highly-flexible organization with increased capacity and product offerings gained through coordinated production and use of best practices across all three facilities,” says Paul Cody, president and CEO of Consolidated Glass Holdings Inc. “The result is increased service, quality, and reduced lead times for our customers.”

Frederic (Rick) Shaw, the company’s senior vice president, leads the new division, while Brian Shaw, vice president of sales, heads sales efforts for the new division. Eric Shaw, vice president of operations directs plant operations for the new division.
