Westcrowns Inc., a member of a European architectural glass group, will open a second regional distribution center. This one will serve the west coast and be located just south of Oakland, Calif. The center will be called Westcrowns Norcal and will be headed by Joe Hardman, of Hardman Glazing.

The center will supply Profilit channel glass products throughout the northwest from Bakersfield, Calif., to the Oregon border and from Reno, Nev., to the coast. The facility will supply the glass channel products to authorized regional glaziers for large projects.
