Problem Statement

  • Cardinal Glass Industries is a management-owned S-Corporation. They develop residential glass for windows and doors. Cardinal Glass has around 6000 employees in 37 locations across the United States and two research centers located in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Their goal is to design and fabricate the most advanced residential glass products in the industry.
