AGC Glass Company North America announced it will be consolidating its fabrication capabilities in Jacksonville, Fla., into the company’s more than 200,000 square foot facility in Lithia Springs, Ga. The consolidation of the Jacksonville operations into Lithia Springs should be completed no later than the fourth quarter of 2014.

The Lithia Springs plant is AGC’s new state-of-the-art facility and is equipped to effectively manage a high volume of glass production for commercial and residential markets, according to company officials. The consolidation of the Jacksonville operation into the Lithia Springs facility will bring all processes under one roof. The move will also allow customers in the Florida market, along with all customers in the Southeast, easier access to all AGC fabricated products, including heavy glass fabrication, spandrel, fire-rated glazing solutions and laminated glass.

Sales, customer service and technical support for all Jacksonville plant customers has been handled by the Atlanta team for a number of years, and starting in late July, AGC will begin delivering to the Jacksonville customers from the Atlanta facility, with no changes in the territory previously serviced.

“AGC continues to make investments in our people and is upgrading its equipment in a number of locations. Our goal is to streamline our processes and create efficiencies that support a high level of quality and customer satisfaction in all markets we are serving in North America,” says Michael Antonucci, North American General Manager of the Building and Industrial Products business.
