Glaston Corp. is restructuring its organization in an effort to enhance strategy execution and customer experience. The reorganization is expected to take effect Oct. 1, 2023.

The restructuring includes the addition of two business areas: architecture and mobility, display and solar. The architecture segment will include current heat treatment flat laminating and flat tempering technologies and insulating glass technologies. The mobility, display and solar sector will include automotive and display processing technologies and heat treatment technologies for the automotive, display and solar glass markets.

New global business functions are planned for automotive, innovation and sourcing and supply chain management. Officials say that sales and services will continue as global functions work together with the business areas.

The new structure will provide resources to accelerate lifecycle revenue growth and dedication to services offering development within the business areas.

Gateway Extrusion Welcomes Missouri State Representative

Missouri state Rep. Brad Banderman visited Gateway Extrusions and presented the Union, Mo.-based aluminum fabricator with a Missouri House of Representatives Proclamation to honor the company’s 20th anniversary.

Gateway opened in 2003 with the acquisition of the shuttered Cupples Aluminum Products plant in the Union Industrial Park by Gateway’s parent company, Crystal Window & Door Systems.

“We were very pleased to share the story of Gateway’s growth and success with Banderman and to receive such a special recognition from Missouri’s House of Representatives,” says general manager Brent Robb. “Banderman grew up and lives in the area and greatly appreciates the value manufacturers bring to the region.”

In addition to the proclamation presentation, Banderman toured the company’s production lines and met with employees. Gateway officials add that Robb met with Banderman to discuss additional investments in the Union Industrial Park plant and sales expansion plans into the Southeastern U.S.

Gateway’s recent Union facility expansion included the purchase of existing adjacent industrial buildings and properties and the installation of new 7-inch and 9-inch extrusion presses and a vertical powder coating line.
