  • What’s Next in ’22

    Business is booming. That’s probably what you’ll hear if you talk to most any contract glazier about their work these days.

  • Calling All Troublemakers … Your Help is Needed

    If Steve Jobs was alive and wasn’t heading up Apple, imagine if he was leading a company in the facades industry. What do you think he would say to those in his organization?

    I never thought I’d get a mention of actor Nicholas Cage or his movie National Treasure in a glass-related article—though the two have come up in glass-related discussions several times over the years. But I did. Just before the July 4th holiday I wrote an article  for USGNN.com™ about the use of glass in historic…
