Dynamic Glass has acquired the assets of Austin, Texas-based Berry Glass. In connection with the transaction, Dynamic Glass has hired Bob Berry, owner of Berry Glass, and his team to run a new Austin division for Dynamic Glass out of Berry’s existing location in Buda, Texas. Berry is a 40-plus-year industry veteran with significant large-scale glazing experience across the state of Texas. He and his team are highly capable, and combined with the resources of Dynamic Glass, will be able to execute at a high level in Austin, according to the company.

Berry and Rick Cieslewicz, president of Dynamic Glass, go back more than 40 years together in the glass business, including working together at Regal Glass in Houston. Both men left Regal Glass and eventually went on to start their own companies, Dynamic Glass in Houston and Berry Glass in Austin. They remained friends over the years and recently decided that combining forces in Austin would create opportunity for both parties in the Austin market, according to the company.

“This is a perfect opportunity for me and my team to combine with a great organization in Dynamic Glass to build something special in Austin. I’m excited to get started and see what we can accomplish together,” says Berry.

Dynamic Glass plans to take a conservative approach in Austin by targeting a few initial projects and building from there. Dynamic Glass will use project management and field capabilities in Austin with drafting and fabrication handled by its 108,000-square-foot facility in Houston or 55,000-square-foot facility in Dallas on larger projects.

“Austin has always been a part of our longer-term plans and when the Berry Glass opportunity came up, it just made too much sense to pass up. Bob Berry and I go back over 40 years and I have full faith and trust in Bob to lead our operation in Austin,” says Cieslewicz.

Dynamic specializes in the fabrication and installation of glass systems and metal cladding products for both the exterior and interior of new construction and renovations of commercial buildings. The Company currently employs approximately 150 employees in Houston, Dallas and Austin.
