Pulp Studio Inc.'s sister company, Vitracor Inc., doing business as California Glass Bending, merged into the operations of Pulp Studio. It will now operate as a division of Pulp Studio. All three, now under the Pulp Studio umbrella, will be located in a new 150,000-square-foot facility at 2100 W. 139th St. in Gardena, California. The merger and move are targeted for completion at the end of January 2017.  

This merger and new facility caps off Pulp Studio’s 20th anniversary year with a $13.5 million 
investment in a manufacturing facility that includes one of the largest chemical tempering tanks in the world, high speed oversized direct-to-glass printing, oversized laminating and a new oversized bent and flat tempering furnace.   

“I think it is safe to say that Pulp Studio will have the only facility in the world where, under one roof, you will be able to print, bend, slump and temper glass of all shapes and sizes on this large scale," says Bernard Lax, founder of Pulp Studio.     

In 2012, Pulp Studio bought California Glass Bending to combine specialty glass and bending under the same roof. In 2014 the company built an 8,000-square-foot facility to produce its Switchlite Privacy Glass. The merger of Vtracore and California Glass Bending under the Pulp Studio umbrella expands the comany's custom decorative glass manufacturing capabilities and reach for the A&D community.
