July 8, 2011  By C.R. Laurence

July 8, 2011 – C.R. Laurence has announced the acquisition of U.S. Aluminum Company, formerly a part of the International Aluminum Group.

In making the announcement, Lloyd Talbert, president of C.R. Laurence,
stated, “We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of the assets
and business of U.S. Aluminum, one of the most respected names in the
storefront and curtain wall business.  We are proud of this new
association and are especially pleased that Tom Harris, executive vice-president of the predecessor company, will join us as president of the
new company.  Tom has over 20 years experience leading major storefront
and curtain wall suppliers, and is well respected in the industry.  Tom
will spend the next few weeks assembling a team to rebuild this iconic
brand, and will be integral in the further development of a
comprehensive architectural hardware program.”

Talbert continues, “Our plan is to contact customers and vendors of U.S.
Aluminum, as well as many of their former employees, to re-establish
relationships. We wish to assure those U.S. Aluminum clients who have
jobs in progress that we will immediately assess the status of their
orders and expedite their completion and delivery. We’re confident that
we can restore the U.S. Aluminum brand to its former luster. We also
appreciate the support and encouragement we have received from many C.R.
Laurence customers during this process."
