On June 9, 2011, Hillary Hulteen and Jack Walsh became the fourth owners of Lafayette Metal and Glass Company, based in Hauppauge, N.Y., which opened for business in 1899.

“Looking back as we approached this anniversary was profound for me, as a leader and as a person. Our vision laid the road ahead, our passion was the driver that brought us to where we are today. We’re a growing team of people striving to be their best every day and in every way. That is who we are as people and as a company,” says Hulteen, Lafayette’s CEO.

Lafayette partners with contractors, throughout the New York and Tri-State area, for custom commercial real estate projects, while also boasting architectural metal production capabilities with the expansion to the new Hauppauge, N.Y. facility in 2018, according to a press release.

In addition to celebrating a decade of business under new ownership, the company opened a new Midtown office space this spring.
