About Us

At Pensacola Glass Company we have the ability to custom design a piece of glass or on the opposite end of the spectrum, work with the design experts in designing a project to comply with the design expert’s intent.  We have been selling and installing glass and glass systems now for over seventy five years.  We strive to stay on top of the new and constantly improving world of technology and building codes.  For example, we have the ability to embed any picture you can give us in a jpg format into a piece of glass.  We can provide the newest, most innovative glass types like photo-voltaic, green building design glazing, triple-silver solar control low-e glass, and triple glazed insulated glass units.

In addition to technology changes, the climatic changes over the course of the last twenty years along with the ever increasing desires of others who want to harm and kill us has dictated the need for Hurricane impact glazing systems along with the need for anti-terrorist (Blast) systems.  We at Pensacola Glass will be more than happy to discuss and work with you on any of these glass needs you may have.  Pensacola Glass is a Florida Certified Glass & Glazing contractor, license number: CGG131149752. 

Pensacola Glass Company was founded in 1936.  It had meager beginnings in a shop located at 46 East Chase Street in downtown Pensacola.  Two brothers, who had previously founded Dothan Glass Co. in Dothan, Alabama, partnered with their brother Harold Pitman to open Pensacola Glass Co. in 1936.  This followed the tradition of family involvement in business endeavors.  The economic growth in the Pensacola area brought great success to this business venture. 

In 1955, a nephew, Charles Merritt, was made the manager.  In 1962, Pensacola Glass Co. was merged into the Dothan Glass co. which had been incorporated in 1956.  This merger included stores in Mobile, AL. and Panama City, FL. which were operated by other family members.  

Traffic problems relating to the opening of the interstate highway connection and the need for additional warehouse space brought about the decision to relocate to new facilities at the present location at 3901 N. Palafox Street.  Woody Watters, who had joined the company as the manager of the commercial contract glazing department in 1985, was made the Branch Manager in June of 1994, and continues to this day. 

The years that have followed have brought tremendous growth.  While the commercial glazing section has made Pensacola Glass Co. a leader in providing services to many major construction projects throughout the region, we also provide service to the residential market, auto glass replacement and repair as well as retail glass products.  Our goal is to provide quality products in all divisions while providing the best in professional workmanship along with efficient and courteous service to all our customers.
