ORIX Mezzanine & Private Equity announces an investment in American Insulated Glass LLC (“AIG” or the “Company”). ORIX Mezzanine & Private Equity provided equity to support AV Capital’s acquisition of AIG in partnership with the company’s management team.
Founded in 1990, AIG is a leading fabricator and distributor of glass products in the Southeast U.S. With manufacturing facilities in Atlanta, Georgia, and Pensacola, Florida, AIG specializes in providing insulated, tempered, laminated and beveled glass to millworkers and glazing contractors serving the residential and commercial end markets. The company also distributes a full line of mirrors and wholesale glass products. The transaction will position AIG for its next stage of growth, including expanding its geographic coverage and service capabilities – both organically and via acquisition.
Vernon Bryant, Managing Partner of AV Capital, said, “We are excited to have completed our second transaction in partnership with ORIX Mezzanine & Private Equity. The ORIX Mezzanine & Private Equity team have been fantastic partners to AV Capital, and we are pleased to work together on AIG to provide strategic and financial resources in support of management’s vision for expanding the company across the Southeast U.S.”
