Oceanside Glasstile Carlsbad, CA – September 2016 – It´s like that tingly feeling in your toes after finishing
a race, like the fire on your breath when you reach the top of a mountain, like spaghetti
noodle arms after hours of paddling for perfect waves; there is nothing quite like the
feeling of working hard to accomplish something great, something that resonates with
the core of who you are. Today, Oceanside Glasstile celebrates this feeling of
accomplishment by announcing its acquisition of Spectrum Glass equipment, formulas and IP.
In 1992 when four California surfers gathered in a small house to take the leap into
Oceanside Glasstile, the love for art glass, the environment and the community
shone through every product, transaction and business decision. Today, on the eve of its
25th anniversary, the company with humble beginnings has maintained its values to
serve over 50,000 artists, designers, architects, builders and homeowners throughout
the world. Each year Oceanside Glasstile innovates to bring new, creative materials for
artists, designers and builders. Acquiring Spectrum Glass assets allows Oceanside
Glasstile to dive deep into dynamic production methods to expand its existing collection
of beautiful, durable and versatile glass products.
Oceanside Glasstile has been a customer of Spectrum Glass for over twenty years, leveraging
Spectrum´s art glass to produce the Devotion collection. This ongoing relationship
between Spectrum Glass and Oceanside Glasstile made the acquisition decision a
rewarding experience for both companies. Together, they will work to unite the legacy
of Spectrum Glass with Oceanside Glasstile´s global network to provide existing Spectrum
customers the same standard of product excellence and customer service that has
existed within the Spectrum family for over 40 years.
Production of the Spectrum Glass and System 96 brand products in Oceanside
Glasstile´s custom built facility in Tijuana, Mexico will commence in early 2017 and will
use the same production techniques and bag-house emission control practices that
Spectrum has used for over 20 years.
Oceanside Glasstile´s team of flip-flop wearing, lunch-time surfing, beach designers welcomes
the northwest hiking boot toting, nugget loving, premium coffee drinking Spectrum
Glass spirit and is excited to stand alongside artists, designers and builders as we enjoy the view of what we can create together.
