Hartung Glass Industries officials announced the company has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Personal Touch Glass, a Lodi, Calif., subsidiary of Glasswerks L.A. Inc. A northern California fabricator, Personal Touch Glass specializes in residential and commercial insulating glass units. It will operate as part of Hartung Glass Industries effective immediately, according to a Sept. 11 release. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"Hartung Glass is very proud of our history in California with full fabrication and tempering furnaces in Sacramento and Union City, as well as a joint Holcam-Agalite manufacturing and distribution facility in Anaheim. Since a majority of PTG's products have less than a three-day lead time, the addition of Personal Touch Glass will complement our existing lines and tremendously enhance our ability to better serve the region," said Hartung President and Owner Nick Sciola, in the release.

The Personal Touch acquisition is Hartung's third in the past 20 months. According to the release, Hartung continues to explore additional cities and opportunities for expanding its footprint in the West Coast market.
