Guardian Glass is to acquire Miami-based fabricator Vortex Glass.

Vortex offers laminated and insulated glass and supplies Florida and the Caribbean Islands customers with complete tempered glass packages for residential and commercial construction, including office partitions, shower doors and glass railings.

By bringing Guardian Glass products and operations together with the fabrication capabilities of Vortex, Guardian is better positioned to assist customers in meeting safety and energy conservation codes for buildings.

Humberto Juliao, Vortex President, said: “We are pleased to see in Guardian Glass a buyer that has strategic synergies with our existing business, the right values and the ability to help Vortex continue to provide great service to our existing customers while identifying and adding the capability for us to add new business.

“It’s a chance for the business as well as our team members to grow.”

Rick Zoulek, Executive Vice President, Guardian Glass Americas, said: “We remain committed to our existing customers and partners, and we’ve identified Vortex as a company with the right team, capabilities, and motivation to fit Guardian’s fabrication business model.”

The deal is expected to be completed on January 23.
