As part of Apogee Enterprises, Inc., Linetec enjoys a solid history of financial strength in the architectural products and services industry.

Apogee transforms plain buildings to create distinctive solutions for architects, building owners, contractors, picture framers and others. Our glass and aluminum window, storefront and curtainwall systems make commercial buildings look great, reduce energy consumption and protect against hurricanes and blasts. Apogee's glass also reduces fading and reflection for picture framing customers.

We combine the expertise of our people to engineer glass and metal building façades, complete massive orders for skyscrapers on time, and manage complex window, curtainwall and storefront installation projects. We also provide high-performance architectural finishing that protects and sustains buildings long into the future, and glass that makes framed art and pictures look better, while helping framers improve profitability.

Leaders in our markets, Apogee leverages the strengths of our products and people to deliver distinctive solutions.
