Western States Glass has a long history of superior operations in northern California with production facilities in Fremont, Fresno, and Sacramento. Western States has been providing first-class service to their customers for many years, offering a wide range of products from shower doors to insulated units. As a result of this acquisition, Trulite and Western States will now serve all of California. The Western States portfolio of products will broaden, offering laminated and PPG certified products produced in Trulite’s Los Angeles Supercenter.
“We are excited to be part of the Trulite organization. We believe that a larger organization will allow us to provide a wider array of products and services to our loyal customer base. Our friendly merger means good things for all of us. It gives our company an extremely strong position in the marketplace and adds the strengths of Trulite to our own,” stated Mickey Smith.
“We are delighted to partner with Mickey Smith (President of Western States), Jon Witkin, and Don Post. We look forward to their contribution in making Trulite an even better company. We fully expect little change for the current customers and employees at Western States as a result of the acquisition,” said Trulite’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Schmitz. “We believe that the acquisition of Western States makes a lot of strategic sense as it gives us ability to expand into an attractive geographic region and partner with a strong management team who has demonstrated its ability to effectively service its customers. We remain interested in additional acquisitions that make good strategic sense and for which there is a strong cultural fit”.
