C.R. Laurence Continues Acquisition Strategy with Sommer & Maca Purchase

Officials from C.R. Laurence Co., Los Angeles, a supplier to the glazing, architectural, construction, industrial, and automotive industries, announced March 25 the purchase of Sommer & Maca Industries, Cicero, Ill.

Donald E. Friese, CRL's chairman and CEO, calls the deal a "perfect fit" and says it will help better the industry by providing more products and services through more local distribution facilities.
