So far, so good
Following several years of change and consolidation in the glass fabrication business, Glass Magazine published the Top Glass Fabricators list in December 2011, identifying leading companies in that market segment. We are working now to update this annual list for the January/February 2013 issue. I have received many submissions ahead of the December 10 deadline, and the results have been encouraging. So far, an overwhelming majority of companies have reported that sales are headed in the right direction, with sales volumes increasing in 2011 over the previous year. Looking ahead, the majority of fabricators are also reporting that they anticipate adding product lines as part of their future expansion plans.
While these survey results are preliminary, I say "so far, so good." To make sure your company is included in the Top Glass Fabricator rankings, please fill out the survey by December 10. If you need a copy, please email me and I will send the survey to you ASAP. And to those of you who have already participated, thank you. As is the case for all the industry leader lists we publish, we aim to provide benchmarks for the industry, and these markers are always a reflection of each company’s participation.
