Cleer Vision Tempered Glass (CVTG), an Elkhart, Ind.-based glass fabricator, recently completed a 28,000-square-foot expansion.

CVTG focuses on the commercial and residential markets while the company services the recreational vehicle and specialty automotive industries through its sister company Cleer Vision Windows (CVW).

The additional space, which brings the company’s footprint to 65,000 square feet, houses its new automated insulating glass line, additional cutting capacity and serves as its primary loading and shipping area.

According to a press release, this the company’s second expansion in three years. In 2013, it added 15,000 square feet of manufacturing space to house its silkscreen and CNC production.

CVTG had approximately 15-20 employees when general manager Tim Widner joined in late 2012. It now has 52 employees, and Widner expects that could grow to approximately 70 after the facility is fully operational following the addition.

“This expansion is going to add a lot of space,” he says. “There’s a lot of opportunity to grow in it.”
