Southern Wholesale Glass Expands

Southern Wholesale Glass expanded its facilities in Americus, Georgia, to support the growing demand of the company’s products and services throughout the southeastern U.S.

The company will have a groundbreaking ceremony on Feb. 20 at 11 a.m. The multi-million-dollar expansion project will include the addition of 20,000 square feet of manufacturing space along with a truck and parts shop. This new space will be equipped with a second tempering line that features a state-of-the-art tempering oven. The fabrication department will grow by adding a third CNC machine and a 14-spindle glass polishing and mitering edger, and the company will also be adding an automated insulating glass sealer and automated cutting line.

The current office will be completely renovated, and the space will increase by 1,600 square feet. Southern Wholesale Glass’s fleet of delivery trucks has steadily grown, and it recently added a 60,000 GVW boom truck to deliver full crates to its customers’ shops and commercial jobsites.

As a result of this expansion project, Southern Wholesale Glass will be adding jobs to its current team, including CNC operators, maintenance positions, draftsmen, production team members, drivers and additional sales associates. The company projects 20 to 40 new additions in the first year and approximately 60 over the course of this expansion process.

Americus will remain the main manufacturing facility that will source existing and future customers. The company says it looks forward to expanding in other cities in the southeastern region, which will bring more jobs and opportunities for current and future employees.
