According to Arch Aluminum & Glass CEO Leon Silverstein, We are thrilled with the opportunities this acquisition provides us. The access to v-groove glass & mirror products, decorative laminated glass and sandblasted products presents Arch tremendous marketing and competitive advantages. The American Glassmith business will now have access to Arch's financial and purchasing power to strengthen its market position. American Glassmith will continue operations under the direction of David Williams and his management team. The company will discontinue production of door and sidelight inserts and concentrate on the custom specialty and decorative laminated products currently popular in OEM and architectural specifications. The Sumiglass product line of laminated glass panels will be expanded and enhanced by the access to Arch's economies of scale. According to Williams, Arch Aluminum & Glass is one of North America's largest and strongest glass fabricators. American Glassmith will provide one of the last missing pieces to their tremendous product line. Being a part of a company the size of Arch will enable us to expand our position as the premier supplier of decorative laminated glass in the market. American Glassmith, located in Columbus, Ohio, has been designing and fabricating decorative glass for over 20 years.The company's virtually unlimited product line is focused on the custom design architectural and OEM consumer markets.
