|About Allied Glass,
from the President...
Welcome to Allied Glass Industries' web site. It is hard to
believe that May 1st marked the start of our 35th year
in business. Having been with the business since day one, I
cant help but think of how far we have come over the years.
Allied Glass Industries was started by my father Robert
Van Horn, a man that worked in the glass industry since
1949. It was his belief that there was a need for a quality
glass fabricator to service the store fixture industry. With
just two edging machines and a glass washer (the last of
which was just taken out of service in 2010) we started
producing glass shelving and "cube" displays that were
distributed to all the major department stores throughout
the United States. With the addition of some new equipment
and a larger building, the business diversified by
fabricating glass for the furniture industry. In 1988 it was
finally decided that we should purchase a tract of land in
an industrial park and put up a building that could be added
to if and when it was needed.
Today Allied Glass Industries is still
fabricating glass for the store fixture and furniture
related industries, but have also expanded into commercial
constructing, glass railing systems, redemption games and
museum displays just to name a few. We have added several
more pieces of equipment including in house tempering and
expanded the building on two separate occasions. The
ideals set forth in the very beginning have been adhered to
throughout our growth and are relied on with every forward
step we take. We want to produce a very high quality
product that is competitively priced and delivered on time.
We know it is our customer that has allowed us to remain a
viable company over the years.
It would be my personal pleasure to add
you as one of our valued customers. I may be reached
personally at any time.
Chris Van Horn
