If you’re a designer, builder, or future owner of a high performance home, you’ll probably be interested in knowing that fiberglass window products previously sold under the SeriousWindows brand will now be sold under the Alpen brand. Boulder-based Alpen High Performance Products announced the purchase of assets including the fiberglass window and architectural glass operation from California-based Serious Energy, Inc.
Originally, the same window and glass business was founded by Robert Clarke and sold under the Alpen brand from 1981 through 2008, when Serious Materials (a former sponsor of this site) bought the business, according to a statement by Alpen.
There will be a period of transition, but readers can now get the 525 Series, 725 Series, and 925 Series through Alpen. In the future, expect more green building products, too. Alpen CEO Brad Begin said: “As we grow our business to include other highly energy efficient products, we feel that Colorado offers a rich pool of talent for innovative green product development.”
