Guardian expects to close on its acquisition of Vortex, a Miami-based fabrication business, on January 23, 2023.

Vortex fabricates laminated and insulating glass that meets Florida Building Code requirements for hurricanes. It also supplies customers of Florida and the Caribbean Islands with complete tempered glass packages for residential and commercial construction, including office partitions, shower doors and glass railings.

By acquiring Vortex, officials for Guardian suggest that the company better positions itself to assist customers in meeting ever-changing building safety and conservation codes.

“We are very pleased to see in Guardian Glass a buyer that has strategic synergies with our existing business, the right values and the ability to help Vortex continue to provide great service to our existing customers while identifying and adding the capability for us to add new business,” says Vortex president Humberto Juliao. “It’s a chance for the business and our team members to grow.”
