The Guardian Rexdale facility has been acquired by Triple Seal, with the aim of adding laminated glass to its fabrication product line, as well as increasing capacity for tempering, fabricating and IG units.
Triple Seal Ltd., which includes Independent Mirror Industries, has acquired the Guardian Rexdale facility from Guardian Industries Canada Corp. The acquisition will add laminated glass to Triple Seal’s fabrication product line, as well as increased capacity for tempering, fabricating and IG units. Plans are already underway to add new technologies to the plant, located in Rexdale, Ontario, Canada, with the installation of a heat soak oven used to test tempered glass for applications such as balcony railings.
Triple Seal had been researching and preparing for this acquisition for months, according to Mark Franklin, president, who noted that the combined strength of both companies is a great opportunity for Triple Seal to deliver greater value to customers through increased capacity and a broader product offering.
The extra capacity that the Rexdale facility affords, as well as laminated glass, strengthens the ability of the Triple Seal Group to offer a full glass solution to existing customers such as contract glaziers, installers and OEM furniture manufacturers, according to company officials.
