American Insulated Glass (AIG), glass fabricator and wholesale distributor, announced recently the acquisition of Tennessee Glass Wholesalers (TGW), a privately held glass distributor located in Knoxville, Tenn. This is an asset-only purchase agreement designed to expand the AIG footprint.

The company first made moves to open a new fabrication facility in June of this year when it opened a sales office in Knoxville, hiring glass industry professionals Bill Evers and Steve Brisbane.

“The AIG team is well-known in this market and we simply could not be more pleased to be moving into a physical location in Knoxville this soon,” says AIG president and CEO Billy Blair.

Company officials say they believe that the acquisition gives AIG an increased ability to service customers in East Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia. Initially, the acquired facility will furnish stock glass and residential insulating glass.
