the thomas glass story

the inception of thomas glass, inc. was in some ways not born out of any certain plan. in 1979, working as local handymen (two brothers) were looking for a new avenue to expand and grow their company. a call from a nationally known stained glass repair and church glazing company changed the direction of their fledgling company. they were offered a job to travel throughout most of the continental usa to work on stained glass and church window glazing. they accepted the offer and opened a new venue for their growing company.

the company expanded into two separate “road crews” that traveled extensively during the next few years.  after these years of traveling, and with most of our workers married w/ children, the company decided to pull back and concentrate on work closer to home. our first commercial window project was as a subcontractor to install windows in a large milwaukee, wi area hospital. it was a good fit for our company.

shortly thereafter we incorporated the company as thomas glass. inc. and began work out of an old barn, as a commercial window installation company. we learned the glazing business from the ground up and after nearly thirty years of growing and learning we have become one of southeastern wisconsin’s premier mid-sized window and glazing contractors.

currently working out of a modern twenty thousand square foot building w/all of the modern technology we feel that we are better able to service our customers than ever before. thomas glass, inc. can and will perform all of the work criteria of one of the mega-glazing companies but on a smaller and more personal scale. we do not plan to become the biggest glazing contractor, only the best.
