Vista to Acquire Caliber Glass IG Assets
March 19, 2013
Vista Window Co. LLC has entered into an agreement to acquire the insulating glass assets and process capabilities of Caliber Glass LLC. Based in Solon, Ohio, Caliber Glass was founded by 30-year industry veteran Mike McHugh, who is currently an owner of smart gas-filling system provider Integrated Automation Systems. In April, Caliber Glass equipment and around eight employees will move to a facility in Lordstown, Ohio, near Vista’s production facility. Currently, Vista employs about 100 workers, and hopes to increase the workers at the Lordstown IG facility to 16 to 20.
“I have collaborated with Mike McHugh for 20 years and look forward to doing it for another 20," says Dan McCarthy, CEO of Vista. “Vista is committed to pushing the envelope with new technologies and performance capabilities, which we are bringing in-house with this acquisition.”
