June 15, 2010 – C.R. Laurence has announced that the company has
completed the purchase of Blumcraft of Pittsburgh, an icon in the
architectural metal and glass industry.
 
“We are very pleased to announce this agreement,” says Lloyd Talbert,
president of
C. R. Laurence. “Blumcraft has been designing, manufacturing, and
delivering high quality products to the architectural metal and glass
industry for over 100 years.  The company is well respected as an
innovator and a pioneer in the heavy glass door market with many firsts,
including the invention of the first panic door system for heavy glass
doors. This product was so well received, it is generally known as a
“Blumcraft” within our industry. The company’s tempered glass doors,
panic hardware, handrails, and display doors are well known and
respected by architects, contractors, and installers.”

“In addition,” Talbert continues, “we anticipate a smooth transition of
the production facilities to our main manufacturing location in Los
Angeles. We hope to make arrangements with many of the key Blumcraft
personnel to stay on with us post-acquisition to ensure our customers
are well served during this transition period. This past year, we have
expanded our product lines and capabilities with the acquisitions of
Tajima, Jackson Manufacturing, and KCS. The acquisition of Blumcraft
will benefit our customers and provide them with even more choices of
high-quality architectural hardware products. We value the experience,
reputation, and technical expertise of the Blumcraft employees and
welcome them to the CRL team.”
