Dynamic Glass Completes Acquisition of Colorado Window Systems

Dynamic Glass has acquired Colorado Window Systems (CWS) Inc., based in Denver. The city “checked all the boxes for us and is somewhere we plan to plant our flag and grow market share long-term,” says CFO Scott Coulter. CWS is a glass and glazing service provider in the greater Denver metropolitan area, focusing on exterior curtainwall and storefront window systems for new construction and interior glass and door installation for commercial tenant improvements.

“We are thrilled at the opportunity to partner with the CWS team and expand our presence into the Colorado market,” adds Coulter. “CWS is a fantastic addition that fits right into our strategic growth plan by adding a significant presence in a high-growth, major U.S. market.”

“Dynamic Glass is the perfect partner to help take CWS to the next level,” says Heidie Skinner, CEO of CWS. “We share the same values about how to treat employees, customers and suppliers that will help make this a smooth transition and win-win for everyone involved. With the resources and expertise of Dynamic Glass, combined with our talented team, the sky is the limit for CWS in Denver.”

With an existing network of offices in Houston, Dallas and Austin, Denver will be Dynamic Glass’ fourth major U.S. city with a dedicated presence.

Central State Glass to Acquire K&K’s Non-Auto Operations

Central State Glass, located in Dade City, Fla., will acquire all non-automotive operations from K&K Glass, based in Tampa, Fla., after the latter announced its transition to auto glass only.

“We have experienced tremendous growth over the last few years and with this growth I feel it is time for K&K Glass to focus strictly on auto glass and calibration services,” says Dan Knowlton, president and CEO of K&K Glass. “K&K Glass will work closely on many projects in the future with the newly formed Central State Glass, operated by Rob Kassabaum.”

He adds, “Residential and commercial glass has played a large role in the success of K&K Glass, largely due to the leadership of Rob. This will be a large transition as we restyle the K&K Glass organization and transition the flat glass component to Central State Glass. We will continue to operate both organizations from many of the same facilities for the foreseeable future.”

Kassabaum, president and owner of Central State Glass, welcomes the new arrangement.

“I have worked with Dan for the last 24 years at K&K Glass, and I am excited to continue working alongside him in this new endeavor,” Kassabaum says. “Both companies will continue to work very closely together, utilizing each other to continue offering superior service to our customers in the future just as we do today. This alignment allows both organizations to widen our scope and geographic presence throughout the state of Florida.”
