Glasswerks LA Acquires Certain Assets of Consolidated Glass Holdings

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

Through this purchase, Glasswerks has added multiple tempering lines, insulating glass (IGU) lines, a laminated line and substantial supporting assets to its current production. These additions make Glasswerks one of the largest privately-owned custom glass fabricators west of the Mississippi after continuous expansions and investments, according to the announcement.

The company currently operates in more than 700,000 square feet of fabrication space across locations in Southgate, Temecula, and Carson, Calif. This latest acquisition substantially adds to its 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,” says Randy Steinberg, president of Glasswerks. “The marketplace’s expectations and demands continue to grow and we intend to keep pace.”

This is the most recent acquisition of CGH assets since it announced in February it was closing both JEB and CCBP. Since then, several companies have acquired assets of CGH companies. The Frameless Hardware Company acquired inventory, fabrication equipment, and product designs for CCBP’s entrance doors, storefront and curtainwall systems, while Arcadia Inc. acquired its window line. Likewise, O3 Industries, purchased substantially all the assets of Solar Seal Co. from CGH. This asset purchase included the equipment and business processes, with the 100+ staff and operations remaining at the South Easton, Mass., facility.

In addition to the acquisitions, two former JEB employees have filed a complaint against JEB and CGH, alleging violations against the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The plaintiffs have requested a trial by jury.
