About Us

Contour was founded in 1985 as a niche specialty glass tempering company of small sizes principle for the appliance, aquarium and millwork industry.  Over the past 25 years, we have retained our focus while methodically expanding our capabilities.  Our company was founded, and has retained the belief, that to produce a good product, you must start with a good company.  We have a high regard for the professional growth of all of our Contour Team because we believe that a company’s products are directly related to the regard the company shows its employees.

Today, Contour serves the appliance, solar glass, lighting, display, and building products markets with high quality glass products.  We call this process of cutting, edging, silk screening, bent/tempering and flat tempering, “glass transformation.”  Recently we added a 48” high speed-tempering furnace, which will improve our customer service to our core customer base, and provide us an entre into additional specialty and fenestration markets.

Our two plants, totaling over 155,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space and three tempering lines, are located at the Phipps Bend Industrial Park, in Surgoinsville, Tennessee.

Cardinal Equity Partners, LLC, an Indianapolis based, family backed private investment firm is pleased to announce that it has sold its investment in Contour Industries, Inc. d/b/a Contour Glass to a group including its long-term management team.  The management team was supported by investments from a Cardinal principal as well as Kissel Capital.  Cardinal acquired Contour in 2011.

Based in the Kingsport, TN area, Contour Glass fabricates glass parts for the appliance, building products, and RV industries, focusing on high volume production runs on its multiple tempering furnaces.  The management team has been in place for the duration of Cardinal’s investment period.  Marc Massa, CEO, stated, “It has been a pleasure working with the partners of Cardinal as we navigated through many successes as well as a few challenges during our partnership.  I, along with my two top leaders in the business, are delighted that Cardinal was willing to facilitate a transaction to our group.  Today, the business is positioned for future success, and we attribute the support of Cardinal in providing that leadership.”

Contour is poised for healthy growth based upon the idea that becoming a customer’s best supplier with strong hands on relationships, will earn business the old fashioned way - by creating value.
