American Insulated Glass, LLC (AIG), a leading glass fabricator and wholesale distributor, announced today the acquisition of Tennessee Glass Wholesalers (TGW), a privately held glass distributor located in Knoxville, Tennessee. This is an asset only purchase agreement designed to expand the AIG footprint.
In June 2019, the company announced the opening of a sales office in Knoxville and the hiring of glass industry professionals Bill Evers and Steve Brisbane with the intention of opening a new fabrication facility. This acquisition will accelerate AIG’s ability to service customers in East Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia. Initially, this facility will furnish stock glass and residential insulating glass, supporting the Knoxville service area with the company’s full range of glass solutions—including commercial insulating glass, custom tempered glass and laminated from Atlanta and Charlotte.
“The AIG team is well-known in this market and we simply could not be more pleased to be moving into a physical location in Knoxville this soon and we look forward to serving glazing contractors that we have dealt with for many years with a broader range of high-performance and custom glass solutions,” shared Billy Blair, President and CEO of AIG.
