Restek Corporation (Bellefonte, PA) announced today their acquisition of Glastron Inc., a 40 year old, New Jersey based manufacturer of specialized glassware and electronic components, and an expert assembler of analytical and testing equipment. “This is an exciting time for both our companies,” said Al Kille, cofounder of Glastron. “Restek has been a key customer for over two decades. This new relationship allows Glastron to continue our focus on specialty glassware and pursue a new vision for the future of our employees.”
Restek will maintain Glastron’s manufacturing site and employee base in Vineland, NJ. “Our goal is for Glastron to remain an independent subsidiary with its own strategies, relationships, and customer base. We think that there are opportunities to use Restek’s innovative approach to product development and customer focus to expand Glastron’s reach into their markets,” said Don McCandless, Head Coach of Restek.
