Catch Up Time

No traditional lead story this week, just a lot of catching up with tidbits of information and happenings around the glass world.

New Pod: Paints, Innovations & More

The latest “From the Fabricator” podcast is now live for your listening and/or watching pleasure. Kicking it off with 2 guys who are incredibly detailed and strong on the paint and finishing sides.

Amazing Project and People

I had noted last week that I was afforded a great opportunity while at BEC in Nashville. Troy Johnson, President of Apogee Architectural Services (Harmon) asked if I wanted to visit a jobsite that they had rolling in town. For me, timing was a nightmare with my responsibilities to BEC, but Troy and the Harmon folks were accommodating and at 6:45 AM on Day 2 of BEC, we shoved off to Nashville Yards Parcel 3a, AKA, NYP3a.
