The Novatech Group, manufacturer of steel entry doors, door glass, patio doors and insulating glass, have announced the purchase of glass products manufacturer Laurier. This transaction is the result of a growth plan that will unite the strengths of both companies in the high-rise, commercial and glass markets.

“Laurier’s expertise, knowledge, ability and reputation are some of the elements that will complement our plants in Anjou, St-Agapit and St-Apollinaire, [Canada], and will distinguish ourselves in the glass industry,” says Novatech president and CEO Harold Savard.

Laurier will now be known as Laurier Architectural. Mélanie Mercier will lead this new Novatech subsidiary, which will continue to offer its current and future customers services.

For 70 years, Laurier has been offering its main products which are value-added insulating glass, heat soar, spandrel, digital print and lamination, mainly for commercial, institutional, high-rise and manufacturing applications.
