Crawford-Tracey Corp., a Florida-based glazing contractor specializing in unitized and pre-glazed curtainwall and window wall products, has purchased its neighboring property which includes two buildings of 41,000 square feet to expand its production operations and inventory capabilities.

The new buildings more than double the company’s current facility of 40,000 square feet. Both buildings will be used with a new production layout that will sequentially move product and assemblies from one building to another. The new work flow will allow simultaneous glass deliveries on one side of the facility while the production of the glazing units will be completed and shipped out the opposite side, increasing overall capacity and fabrication efficiencies.

“We are extremely excited with our acquisition, as it strategically supports our growth, creating an extremely efficient curtainwall glazing assembly,” says Ray Crawford, president of Crawford-Tracey. “The fact that we were able to purchase the property directly behind our facility was critical in our ability to integrate the two facilities and expand our production capabilities.”

Crawford-Tracey has seen double-digit growth over the last couple of years with its best year ever in 2017, according to the company. Recent high-profile projects include Daytona International Speedway, Southwest Terminal 1 at FLL, U Health Lennar Foundation Medical Center, Florida Hospital Apopka, Nike Retail Store (Lincoln Rd.), FIU Student Academic Success Center (SASC) Building and the Mercy Hospital window renovation in Miami.
