|Tubelite Inc. has hired Fred Haas as a client development manager to provide clients in Maryland, D.C., Delaware and northern Virginia with storefront, curtainwall, entrance and daylighting systems.
Haas most recently worked for Oldcastle Building Envelope as a sales representative for the same region. His previous employers include Zephyr Aluminum, LLC of Lancaster, Pa.; Caplan Bros. Glass in Baltimore; Harmon, Inc.’s Baltimore office; and J Keller Glass Inc. of North Beach, Md.

Ideal for projects in D.C. and Maryland, the company offers recycled aluminum and has developed a blast-mitigating system,” says Haas.
Tubelite offers EcoLuminum™, a high recycled-content aluminum billet composition with eco-friendly, durable finishes for all of its products.
