Pulp Studio Finalizes Merger
Bernard Lax, founder of Pulp Studio, announces that as of Jan. 1, its sister company, Vitracor Inc., doing business as California Glass Bending, has been merged into the operations of Pulp Studio, Inc. and that California Glass Bending will now operate as a division of Pulp Studio. All three, now under the Pulp Studio umbrella, will be located in a new 150,000 s/f state of the art facility at 2100 W. 139th St.in Gardena, California 90249. The merger and move are targeted for completion at the end of this month.
This merger and new facility caps off Pulp Studio’s 20th anniversary year with a $13.5 million investment in a state of the art glass manufacturing facility that includes one of the largest chemical tempering tanks in the world , high speed oversized direct to glass printing, oversized laminating and a new oversized bent and flat tempering furnace. “I think it is safe to say that Pulp Studio will have the only facility in the world where, under one roof, you will be able to print, bend, slump and temper glass of all shapes and sizes on this large scale,” says Lax.
Over the last two decades Pulp Studio has built its business from the ground up. Key to their success has been their constant status as innovators and willingness to change. When others in the industry start catching up, Pulp Studio steps up to the next level, keeping ahead of the pack developing new capabilities and efficiencies that no one else possesses either though design or manufacturing capability. In 2012, Pulp Studio bought California Glass Bending to combine specialty glass and bending under the same roof. In 2014 they built an 8,000 sq. ft. facility to produce their Switchlite Privacy Glass and develop the highest industry standard for the quality and performance of liquid crystal glass. The merger of Vtracore and California Glass Bending under the Pulp Studio umbrella further extends the company’s vision as the global leader in custom decorative glass manufacturing for the A&D community.
