Provider of acoustical and thermal solutions, Serious Energy, announced that it has sold its fiberglass and architectural glass window business to Alpen High Performance Products (Alpen HPP). Serious Energy’s fiberglass and architectural glass window manufacturing takes place in a facility based in Longmont, CO.
The sell out will not affect the production as Alpen HPP will continue with the production at the Longmont facilities. Serious Energy will focus on scaling towards customized, high-performance fiberglass window products for residential and commercial use. The company has experienced very positive gains in total window sales in the second quarter of 2012.
On the other hand, Serious Energy will continue to produce vinyl windows and doors at its Vandergrift, PA plant. Serious Energy’s vinyl windows and doors are widely used in residential applications. Both Serious Energy and Alpen HPP enjoy a longstanding relationship and have interests in the production, distribution and marketing for high-performance suspended films. The companies are also exploring prospects for collaboration in the fields of technology, products and distribution. Residential vinyl products from Serious Windows are energy efficient and popular among contractors and homeowners. The iWindow commercial replacement product will also continue to be marketed by Serious Windows.
Tassilo Baeuerle, the CEO of Serious Energy, believes that the companies can accelerate sales growth. Serious Energy will focus on its core competencies – making energy-efficient windows with glass suspended film products, as well as acoustical products such as QuietRock sound-damping drywall.
QuietRock ES is a soundproofing drywall panel that delivers easy-to-install conventional solutions. This feature makes it one of the most sought-after choices of professionals. Products from the QuietRock line deliver Sound Transmission Class (STC) ratings and satisfy the requirements of architects connected with sound attenuation.
