The website said that under third-generation President Scott Lange, “Glasfloss has moved aggressively to modernize and expand its manufacturing capacity to better serve growing markets.”

As part of that,  in 2002, Glasfloss bought “a modern 80,000 square foot facility located in Jacksonville, Florida. This facility serves the thriving Southeast markets and improves lead times and shipping costs for customers in that region.”

It says “Glasfloss stands poised to lead the industry into the 21st Century the same way it started over 80 years ago: by furnishing the special needs of the air filtration industry with quality products, competitive prices, and reliable on-time delivery.”

Glasfloss bought the Tradeport building from NatureForm.
