Post Time:Nov 12,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:61

Stuart Dean Co., New York,and GlasWeld,Bend, Ore.,created a strategic alliance to form one of the largest glass restoration companies in North America, according to an April 29 release. A key objective for both companies is to provide a significant and positive impact on the environment by repairing glass and other surfaces, rather than replacing it. This approach to environmental sustainability will benefit and raise environmental consciousness by decreasing the amount of glass in landfills and reducing the cost of replacement glass.

“The recycling of automotive and architectural glass is pretty much non-existent, so most replaced glass ends up filling our landfills,” said Mike Boyle, president of GlasWeld, in the release. “The process to produce new glass is extremely energy-hungry--add that to shipping and installation energy usage--and restoration is the only thing that makes sense from a sustainability standpoint. We are looking forward to making a real environmental impact with this new alliance.”

"We have worked extensively with GlasWeld for a number of years, and adding glass restoration to our menu of metal, stone and wood, maintenance and restoration services allows Stuart Dean to provide our clients with a total solution,” said Marc DuBay, director of national business development, Stuart Dean, in the release.

The new strategic alliance will launch this weekend at the American Institute of Architects National Convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
