Here is the letter from glass door manufacturer Anthony International regarding the SCHOTT Gemtron announcement.
Dear Valued Customer:
I would like to inform you that SCHOTT Gemtron has determined to discontinue its North American Food Display operations at its Vincennes, IN, production facility, and has offered to sell certain manufacturing assets to Anthony. Anthony has decided to purchase these assets, which consist of the manufacturing equipment used for commercial food display refrigeration and freezer products. SCHOTT Gemtron is a United States joint venture of SCHOTT Group and AGC Glass Company North America.
As part of this asset purchase, Anthony will be able to supply SCHOTT Gemtron customers in North America (US, Canada, Mexico) with our full product offerings and customer support during this transition. This transaction complements Anthony’s planned expansion of our overall plant capacity and capabilities.
Anthony is looking forward to providing our customers throughout the industry with the products they need to continue to successfully operate their businesses. We welcome the opportunity to meet with each of you to better understand your needs and to provide you with the very best value added solutions possible.
