Arturo Carrillo, president and CEO of Binswanger Glass, appears optimistic about the acquisition of the company by private-equity firm Grey Mountain Partners, announced earlier today.

“We are very excited about partnering with Grey,” Carrillo, president and CEO of Binswanger Glass, told glassBYTEs.com™/AGRR™ magazine today. “This is the first time that we’re not tied to a fabricator. Before, we were owned by ACI [Glass Products of Memphis], then Trulite [Glass and Aluminum Solutions of Deerfield Beach, Fla.]. This is the first time that we’re independent. We’re happy to get back to our roots as a glass installer.”

This is the second time Binswanger has changed hands in less than a year. Binswanger and its former parent company, Vitro America, were acquired in June of last year by an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners—also a private equity firm.
