In 1978, Bill Crawford rented out a garage and started making insulated units. He would find jobs, measure for the glass, cut the glass and make the units, then install the windows himself.
As he started building a name for himself, he was able to start hiring people and buy more equipment. Eventually him and his team were able to grow the business significantly where a much
larger space was needed, so he moved the company and his employees to a much larger shop in Wilmington, MA.
Contract Glass Service thrived there for a couple decades growing with every year. CGS started not only manufacturing insulated units, they were started tempering glass and polishing the edges
on pieces. Everything was on the up-and-up until one cold day in February of 2011, a devastating fire consumed the building and burned it to the ground, destroying nearly everything.
Fortunately no one was harmed, but the business had turned to ashes. Contract Glass was able to rent out a temporary location and started buying equipment to cut glass and make insulated units so
that everyone was still able to work.
As the burns from the fire healed, Contract Glass recouped at an increasingly fast rate where they moved to our current location in Billerica, MA, which is a 44,000 sq./ft facility with more
top-of-the-line equipment than ever before. We embrace our new logo, the phoenix, which represents our drive and motivation after the fire to build back a new and improved Contract Glass Service.
