At Standard Glass we are constantly striving for further advancement. We are continually educating ourselves in all branches of the industry, acquiring and mastering the latest technology, and working to improve the scope and the efficiency of all, and even our most basic, operations. Online courses in glazing and other fields of the industry are funded by Standard so that we may all further our knowledge of the field.
We have hosted summer seminars on new glass technology of Germany, where our employees and peers learned to use high-tech glass cutting instruments, vinyl programs for custom sand-blasting, and the ever challenging but always inspirational UV Bonding process. Recently, Standard Glass and all of its employees embarked on a group trip to the National Glass Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada where we spent 5 days immersing ourselves in all things new in the glass industry (and of course enjoying the Strip for a bit!). Our next group voyage is to The International Glass Trade Fair in Germany, and we are working hard towards it
In the Summer of 2009, Standard Glass was contracted to provide and install the interior glass for a highly anticipated expansion of the National World War II Museum that included the American Sector restaurant, Stage Door Canteen, and Museum Gift Shops. Custom sand-blasted ½” thick starphire glass was fabricated and installed as the impressive centerpiece of the American Sector’s bar. Unique suspension shelving systems were installed for product display in the gift shop, and state of the art, uv bonded display cases were meticulously constructed to house some of the museum’s precious exhibition items. The project was challenging, and the finished product inspiring. We were proud to be a part of a significant endeavor that educates the world’s generations, and pays tribute to our American soldiers, to all of the World War II heroes, and to those who lived and died in such a profound era of history.
