Decorative Glass Solutions
Why Specialty Glass Products?
A look inside Specialty Glass Products
The company was incorporated in June, 2005 when it purchased the assets of Furniture City Glass, a glass and mirror fabricating company located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Immediately upon purchase, the name was changed to “Specialty Glass Products” to signify the new direction of the company. The name change was symbolic, but it was the catalyst in changing the perception of the Company internally and externally with its customers.
Our customers were extremely frustrated with the cost, leadtime and service level of their current suppliers of Decorative Glass. Solving this need began our mission. We started with painting glass and continued to add more value added services. The company quickly developed a reputation for innovation, creativity, reliability and quality.
Specialty Glass Products formed a Strategic Partnership with a major paint manufacturer in 2007 and became their sole customer of their water-based paints designed specifically for decorative glass. The environmentally friendly water-based paints have 80-95% less VOC’s than the solvent based products used by its competition. To ensure a consistent high quality finish, Specialty Glass Products designed and developed their our own CNC machines to apply the paints. The major paint company conducted a thorough review of the internally developed paint application process and certified Specialty Glass Products as the first and only “Approved Applicator” of this product.
Today, our primary goal is to provide decorative glass products that are incorporated into offices, universities, health care facilities, retail spaces, and more. In doing so, we continue to strive for eco-friendly processes, superior customer service, and creative innovation.
