Spacer and Powder Coating Facility Opening in Florida

Glasslam CEO Steve Howes, in partnership with Pat Argento, owner of Hurricane Impact Glass & Aluminum, has purchased Florida Powder Coating in Lantana, Fla., and formed a new company, Cirrus Powder Coating.

With the new ownership, two automated spacer manufacturing systems that will produce Air-Tight S silicone insulating glass spacer will be added to the operation.

“Because of the size of the facility, we decided to expand our spacer manufacturing with our new in-line technology spacer systems," says Howes. "There turns out to be a lot of synergies with powder coating and our other businesses that we can utilize in this new plant. The powder coating capability fits well into our product categories of laminating, insulating, coloring and decorating.”

The two spacer lines being installed are expected to be operational by the end of the year. The additional foam spacer capacity will help Glasslam service the North American market with higher desiccant, higher durometer and higher dimensional tolerance product than its competition–and with improved lead-times, Howes reports.
