Officials from HMI Cardinal, one of the largest domestic manufacturers of custom glass shower enclosures and a key supplier of commercial glazing solutions and artisan glass, announced the acquisition of Woon-Tech, based in Whitinsville, Massachusetts.

Woon-Tech, also known as Woonsocket Glass Fabricators, is a leading manufacturer of glass shower enclosures in New England. The company is also a nationally recognized fabricator of other specialty glass products including glass entrances, mirrors and full-color digitally printed glass.

According to company officials, with the addition of Woon-Tech, HMI Cardinal expands its shower glass manufacturing capabilities outside of its Louisville, Kentucky, headquarters, allowing it to better serve its well-established national customer base. In addition, the acquisition extends the company’s specialty glass fabrication capabilities through Woon-Tech’s digital ceramic in-glass printing, back painting, glass lamination and specialty mirror manufacturing.

“Woon-Tech has a talented team with extraordinary specialty glass fabricating capabilities that clearly complement Cardinal’s own facilities and skillsets,” says Chris FitzGerald, CEO of HMI Cardinal. “Together, Cardinal and Woon-Tech are positioned to more effectively serve our combined national customer base with industry-leading glass fabrication and glass technology capabilities. In addition, both companies will be even better equipped to support their traditions of high-quality products, short lead times, and excellent customer service.”

As a new subsidiary of HMI Cardinal, Woon-Tech will retain its new manufacturing facility in Whitinsville, as well as the management team and employees under the leadership of current President Chip Rogers. Cardinal and Woon-Tech will each continue to serve their respective customer bases with the same high quality and delivery standards for which they are both recognized, according to company officials.
