Spectrum Glass Company Announcement

September 22, 2016

Dear Spectrum Glass Customer;

 

At long last we have some wonderful and exciting news to share with you about Spectrum Glass products! We have finalized the sale of Spectrum® Glass and our System 96® brands, equipment, and formulas to world-renowned glass manufacturer Oceanside Glasstile (OGT) in Carlsbad, CA. A long-time Spectrum customer, Oceanside Glasstile manufactures high-end cast glass tile for residential, commercial and pool applications. For almost twenty-five years OGT has led their segment of the art glass industry with innovation and design. Upon receiving the announcement about Spectrum’s closing, the opportunity to become the new manufacturer of Spectrum Glass products was evident – not only for the benefit of securing material for their own product lines, but a chance to serve the global art glass industry as a whole.  

As an industry-leading glass tile manufacturer, Oceanside Glasstile is already experienced in colored glass production. With the acquisition of Spectrum Glass’ equipment and color formulas, as well as receiving extensive in-person training by Spectrum’s key manufacturing experts, Oceanside Glasstile will have the knowledge and tools necessary to continue the legacy of unique and popular Spectrum sheet glass that customers have relied upon for forty years.

Spectrum Glass products will now be manufactured at OGT’s state-of-the-art facility located in Tijuana, Mexico. With their long-standing commitment to being an environmentally concerned manufacturer, they will be utilizing the same baghouse emission controls that Spectrum Glass has used for over twenty years.

We couldn’t be more pleased to have Oceanside Glasstile assume the manufacturing of Spectrum’s glass products. We are confident that their commitment to maintaining the brand’s attributes will assure that future generations will be able to source the same beautiful, consistent and high quality art sheet glass. The owners and employees are passionate, dedicated, and ready to take on the task at hand – in fact the transition is already under way. We will provide additional details and updates regarding our collective progress throughout the months ahead.
