Since 1945, Tubelite has been one of the building industry's premier manufacturers of aluminum storefront, curtainwall, and entrance systems. Currently we're adding energy saving products for daylighting control and increased thermal performance to our product offering. Tubelite is known for its high quality and timely delivery, and we intend never to compromise that reputation. More opportunities to strengthen our reputation and expand for future growth became available to us since joining the Apogee Enterprises, (www.apog.com), family in December 2007. We're now one of five stand-alone Apogee architectural companies.
Recognizing the importance of construction project schedules, we've built our business around the goal of being the most dependable supplier in our industry. This means quality products; fast, reliable delivery; easy fabrication and installation; and personal service. Tubelite is also focused on reducing waste, and the amount of energy consumed by commercial buildings. Introducing Ecoluminum™ in December 2009, all extrusions are produced using a minimum of 83 percent recycled aluminum content. Anodized and painted finishes are applied using environmentally friendly processes, and new products are designed for higher thermal performance and increased use of natural light.
