American Insulated Glass LLC acquired Innovative Glass of America, a North Carolina-based glass fabricator and wholesale distributor. This deal enables AIG to expand its market reach and product capabilities across the southeastern United States.

IGA is a Guardian Select Fabricator and a stocking distributor for Kawneer. The company offers an array of fabricated glass solutions, including Vetrotech fire-rated ceramics, Keralite Select F and Select L, Spandrel HT, ShowerGuard and impact laminated glass, along with a range of decorative glass solutions.

“We are thrilled to welcome IGA to the AIG team,” says Billy Blair, president and CEO of AIG. “For decades, IGA has provided quality products and service to glazing contractors in North and South Carolina, and portions of Virginia and South Georgia. This acquisition will allow AIG to better serve customers across the Southeast with a variety of outstanding product capabilities as our company continues to grow.”

Louie Dean, founder and president of IGA, was a driving force in bringing the two companies together and he will continue to manage the daily operations in Dallas, North Carolina. “We have great, long-standing, working and personal relationships with the leadership at AIG and we look forward to the success that will come from being a part of a larger unified team,” says Dean.

With a new fabrication facility recently opened in Birmingham, Alabama, along with its current facilities in Pensacola, Florida, and Atlanta, plus IGA’s facility in Dallas, North Carolina, AIG now covers the entire Southeast market. Each of its facilities is equipped with insulating glass lines, edging, beveling and tempering for residential and commercial markets.
