Columbia Commercial Building Products Buys Assets of Atlas Architectural

Columbia Commercial Building Products purchased certain assets of Atlas Architectural Metal I. Columbia is a supplier of commercial aluminum windows and is located in Rockwall, Texas.

Atlas currently has manufacturing operations and a service center in Houston as well as a service center in Dallas. The combined company will continue to known by both names with Columbia as the managing parent company.

According to Ken Holbrook, national sales manager of Columbia, the principle reason for the purchase was to expand its product line into the areas of storefront, curtainwall and door markets. Mr. Holbrook said that other than some management changes, no other changes have occurred, and Columbia is now managing both of Atlas's facilities. "Columbia sees the purchase as a stepping stone to further itself within the commercial aluminum manufacturing industry," said Holbrook.

Holbrook will be serving as national sales manager for both companies reporting to C. W. Bricker, vice president and general manager of the combined companies. "We intend to provide the same high level of customer service and outstanding lead-times to our Atlas customers as our Columbia customers have experienced in the past, with coordination of both companies activities from the Rockwall location," said Bricker.
