Post Time:Oct 31,2011Classify:Industry NewsView:118

Steve Howes, CEO of Glasslam, in a partnership with Pat Argento, owner of Hurricane Impact Glass & Aluminum, purchased Florida Powder Coating in Lantana, Fla., forming a new company, Cirrus Powder Coating.The newCirrus facility will feature two automated spacer manufacturing systems that will produce Air-Tight S silicone spacer, according to a release.

"Because of the size of the facility, we decided to expand our spacer manufacturing with our new in-line technology spacer systems," Howes said, in the release. "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."

Howes said the two spacer systems are currently being installed and will 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, with improved lead-times, officials said, in the release.
