AIG Expands Capabilities in Knoxville Facility
American Insulated Glass completed a number of improvements to the fabrication facility in Knoxville, Tennessee, designed to expand the facility's insulating glass fabrication capabilities and improve the level of service experienced by customers. The improvements to the Knoxville facility include a supplementary tempering furnace to increase capacity, the addition of a LiSEC bending machine, a LiSEC butyl extruder, and a new 96-inch automated cutting table.
"The additions and improvements made to the Knoxville facility reflect our ongoing commitment to elevate the value we bring to our customers," says Clint Blair, vice president of AIG. "We are excited to continue growing and expanding into new markets, as well as enhancing our existing facilities as new technology allows to ensure our customers continue to receive the level of service they know to expect from us."
AIG's entrance to the Knoxville market was announced in 2019 and was one of several expansions seen in the last three years. The Knoxville facility is also a Tubelite distributor for storefront metal and entrances, and stocks CRL and Portals Hardware for custom shower enclosures. As AIG pursues its expansion into the Eastern Kentucky market, new team members will be added to support continued growth.
In addition to Knoxville, AIG opened a new location in Birmingham, Alabama, and acquired businesses in Charlotte, North Carolina, Detroit, Michigan, and Baltimore, Maryland. Combined with the existing facilities in Georgia and Florida, AIG currently has seven regional fabrication facilities and looks forward to further opportunities to grow and better serve customers, say company officials.
