Advanced Global Transitions Business to Direct Source

March 30, 2009

Direct Source International has acquired the assets of Advanced Global Technologies in a transaction effective the last day of 2008, the companies report. AGT specializes in global sourcing of components supplying OEM manufacturers in the window, door and industrial markets. Its products include aluminum and vinyl extrusion, metal stamping, die casting, injection products and screen cloth for use in the window, door and industrial markets.

Existing AGT staff has transitioned into the DSI organization.

“As we are all aware the current housing and financial market turmoil has touched everyone from consumers to manufacturers and suppliers. Certainly, the past 16 months have presented tenuous times for those of us in the industry, but we also feel that the industry will turn and now is the time to position ourselves for future opportunities,” said Judy Lipski, president of DSI. “It will be business as usual and the transition from AGT to DSI will be seamless to our existing and new customers.”

Direct Source International operates offices in Marlton, N.J. and Shanghai, China.
