Miami, FL, Aug. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tecnoglass, Inc. (NYSE: TGLS) ("Tecnoglass" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of architectural windows, glass and associated aluminum products for the global residential and commercial construction industries, today announced the relocation of its global headquarters to Miami, Florida from Barranquilla, Colombia. The relocation is effective immediately.

This strategic move is aimed to further bolster the Company's strong market presence and continued growth in the United States, where it sells the majority of its innovative architectural high-end window, glass and aluminum products. Over the past decade, Tecnoglass has experienced substantial growth in the United States, which currently accounts for more than 95% of its generated revenues. By moving its global headquarters to the United States, the Company believes it will be better positioned to serve its customers, respond swiftly to market dynamics, and harness the favorable growth opportunities available. Additionally, the significant portion of existing sales, marketing and corporate functions already performed in the U.S. will be supported by this move.

José Manuel Daes, Chief Executive Officer of Tecnoglass, commented, "Becoming a U.S. based company is an exciting milestone for our Company. Our successful record of sustainable growth in the U.S. has already helped to cement Tecnoglass as a U.S.-centric company. The decision to relocate our global headquarters to Miami is aligned with this growth and underscores our commitment to further strengthening our customer relationships, streamlining administrative functions and enhancing our operational efficiency.”

Mr. Daes continued, “We believe the relocation of our global headquarters will also enhance our eligibility to be included in U.S. based indexes, allow us to expand our reach with global investors, strengthen our U.S. capital markets relationships, and foster long-term partnerships that will fuel our innovation and multi-pronged growth strategy."

The new global headquarter is located within one of the Company’s existing facilities in Miami, Florida, with plans already underway to purchase land for the buildout of a showroom and a new executive office over the next 12 to 18 months. The Company’s existing corporate offices in Barranquilla, Colombia will continue to serve as a critical operational and administrative hub, supporting the Company’s extensive, cost-efficient manufacturing platform.
