Santa Monica, CA – June 1, 2010
For many years, Oldcastle Glass® has been supplying products and services that go well beyond the definition of a traditional glass fabricator. Through key strategic acquisitions and product development, the company has positioned itself as an integrated building envelope supplier.
To reflect that evolution, Oldcastle Glass® is now Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope™. More than a name change, this is a sea change in how the building envelope is realized. Today, Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope™ is the leading supplier of products specified to close the building envelope, including custom-engineered curtain wall and window wall, architectural windows, storefront systems and doors, skylights, and architectural glass.
“The products we engineer are vastly different from anyone in our space—there’s no one in our market that has the depth and breadth of building envelope products,” said Ted Hathaway, Chief Executive Officer, Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope™. “And no other company has the ability to engineer those products as an integrated system."
Hathaway further explained that this name change reflects a comprehensive approach in responding to the changing needs of the marketplace. “Our approach is consistent with what the American Institute of Architects describes as Integrated Project Delivery, which integrates people, systems, business structures, and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to reduce waste and optimize efficiency of design, fabrication, and construction. We believe this approach is the key to the future
of our industry,” said Hathaway.
