Trainor Glass Co. will consolidate several core business units and plant production to match the projected marketplace, according to a March 11 release.

The contract glazier is consolidating its Champaign, Ill., and South Bend, Ind., facilities, and scaling back its Las Vegas and Wyoming operations, which will be handled out of Phoenix and Denver, respectively. These four locations represent less than 2 percent of the company's total business, according to the release. "We are still doing active business, just consolidating operational costs to reflect current marketplace conditions," Trainor officials said in the release.

The Trainor Glass Illinois offices have relocated to new space in downtown Chicago. The Alsip plant will be consolidated into other locales over a period of time.

These are proactive moves to better position the company's products and offerings, according to the release. Trainor still has more than 400,000 square feet of strategically located plants that remain in full production mode with solid backlogs.
