DWM just returned from GlassBuild America at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. In case you missed our coverage last week, here’s a quick rundown of our reports from the big show.

Day 1: Quanex unveiled a bevy of new products, and Caldwell Manufacturing’s booth featured an innovative window from Rochester International called FoldUp. Here’s a short video of the window in action:


Day 2: Machinery and hardware were the focus. Speaking of hardware, Lawrence Hardware of Thomasville, N.C., had some of the best swag of the show:
