TechnaGlass was founded in 1991 by Mr. Troy Mason, whose family has generations of experience in the glass industry. His father worked in the glass industry for more than three decades, which enabled Troy a natural transition into the industry. His ability to understand the emerging needs of auto glass customers within the Salt Lake City market led him to the realization that the consumers relied upon his unrelenting quest for quality products and services. The Company opened its first retail location in September of 1992 on a busy Salt Lake City corner just off a major freeway exit. This location became a catalyst to the company's existing 14 prime retail locations.
TechnaGlass began as a typical full-service glass shop, offering a variety of glass related products and services. In 1997, TechnaGlass opened two stores in one year. TechnaGlass then executed a program of retail growth, refining its operations to specialize in auto glass repair and replacement.
In 2001, the growth of TechnaGlass began to surge. Consumers responded positively to an auto glass repair and replacement company that provided high quality services in prime retail locations. This response continues to the current day as TechnaGlass has opened an average of more than one new location every year since 2001.
TechnaGlass opened its first distribution warehouse in 1996 to further accommodate growth and facilitate buying efficiencies. The additional warehouse capacity has allowed TechnaGlass to truly maximize economies of scale. TechnaGlass placed itself in the enviable position of purchasing product directly from manufacturers around the world. The result: TechnaGlass offers industry-leading service, quality and price to its valued retail customers.
