Mygrant Glass Co. of Hayward, Calif., has acquired the assets of Bartelstone Glass Distributors and Wholesale Glass Distributors (WGD), marking Mygrant's entry into the New York and New Jersey markets with four new locations.

The existing Bartelstone locations in Brooklyn, N.Y., and Belleville, N.J., will now operate under the Mygrant name. The Wholesale locations in Corona, N.Y. and Lakewood, N.J., will be maintained, according to company officials.

Meanwhile, the Vineland, N.J., location will be consolidated with Mygrant's operations in Warminster, Pa. WGD's Brooklyn warehouse will be consolidated with the new Mygrant location in Brooklyn (formerly operated by Bartelstone).

"We're excited at the opportunity to serve customers in the New York and New Jersey markets," says Paul Anaya, Mygrant's national accounts and marketing manager. "It has been a long term goal for the company, and we're proud of our employees and grateful for the hard work they've put toward reaching this goal."

Bartelstone served New York and New Jersey for more than 100 years and many of the key employees will be retained, according to officials. Many of WGD's employees are also being retained, including Tom Barsh, outgoing owner of Wholesale Glass Distributors, who will stay on as the regional sales manager for New York and New Jersey.

"Tom Barsh brings a lot of experience and knowledge to the company and we're happy to have him," says Anaya.

Mygrant now has 62 locations nationwide.
