Laminated Glass News: June 2014
Dear Friends in the Architectural Community,
We are pleased to inform you that Kuraray's acquisition of DuPont's Glass Laminating Solutions (GLS) business was completed at the end of May 2014.
You have known us for many years as DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions, the worldwide supplier of SentryGlas® ionomer sheet, Butacite® polyvinyl butyral (PVB) sheet, Spallshield® cPET and SentryGlas® Expressions™ interlayers. All of these products will be sold under the Kuraray name as of June 1, 2014.
The combined operations will have production locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia. This network of commercial, R&D, and logistic centers in all regions of the globe will enable us to offer our customers superior, globally competitive and more seamless service in the future. At the same time, we will use our combined expertise to raise our innovation capability and drive technological developments even faster than in the past.
The Glass Laminating Solutions team and all of its assets are changing owners but you will continue to deal with the same Architectural Specifications Specialists, Account Managers, Customer Service Representatives, Technical Service Representatives, Technical Consultants, and Global Management Team as you do today. For the near term, phone numbers and email addresses will remain unchanged. We commit to keep you updated on future changes generated by this change of ownership.
We thank you very much for your interest and trust in our products. We are committed to providing you with the same high quality levels to which you have become accustomed. We are very enthusiastic about our move to Kuraray and look forward to working with you on your projects calling for laminated glass. We believe that these changes will allow us to better serve you in the future.
As we work through this process, we will do our best to keep you informed. If you have any question, feel free to contact us
Jonathan V. Cohen
Global Business Director, SentryGlas®
