  • Welcome to Glass Design, Inc.

    The Glass Industry:

    The Glass Division provides complete design, engineering, procurement and construction services to almost every phase of the glass industry in the mechanical, refractory and process fields. We supervise all aspects of a project.

    Our projects range from service calls on a small furnace to the complete range of furnace rebuild and installation as well as concrete finishing and millwright operations. We also provide hot repair.

    To assist in the maintenance of your plant, we also provide furnace audits. Our attention to detail and precise workmanship will help provide a long life cycle for your furnace

    Industrial Construction:

    Glass Design, Inc. has served the glass industry for many years-rebuilding and building furnaces throughout the nation. Many of these projects were manned on a 24 hour basis with the principal objective being the shortest possible glass to glass down time. Our expertise in fielding qualified personnel, meeting schedules, and maintaining low cost are very important when examining Glass Design, Inc.'s ability to perform. Our crews are very experienced in hotwork, heatup, and "on the fly” repairs.

    Our company and personnel have completed projects on the following types of furnaces: blast furnace, basic oxygen furnaces, soaking pits, open hearth furnaces, reverbetory furnaces, heat treating, and all types of furnaces for the refining industry. In the aluminum industry, we have completed projects on scrap melters, rotary furnaces, induction furnaces, holding furnaces, post, ladles, crucibles and pouring troughs. We have rebuilt large (up to 10 MMBTU) burners for the aluminum industry.

    Millwright Services:

    Glass Design, Inc., in addition to the services provided for the glass industry, has extended its capabilities to include millwright services. We employ men who are experienced in all phases of millwright work. Our millwright crews have completed fabrication and installation of batch conveyor systems, bucket elevator systems, cullet conveyor belt systems and cold-end installations, together with the necessary concrete and steel work for these projects.

  • Refractories

    As contractors we saw a need for someone to quickly and efficiently supply refractory materials to this area, and negotiated a warehouse dealership, which allows us to supply our customers with all the equipment, labor and materials necessary to complete a job.

    Glass Design, Inc. is the Southwest Supplier for Corhart patching material. Some of the material we stock are; Unipave-A Castable, Unipave-B and C Mortar, Ergal 50 Cement, Ergal 05, Ergal 05C, Erplast 20, Erplast 05 and Corhart 271 Zircon Patch.

  • Industrial Maintenance

    I want to express my appreciation for your interest in Glass Design, Inc.

    Our Industrial Maintenance crew performs a wide variety of services for plants and factories. These services range from providing support and assistance to the already existing maintenance departments of plants and factories as well as the fabrication and installation of independent projects.

    Some of our most requested items are stairways, handrails, walkways, and platforms that meet all OSHA requirements. However, we will be happy to look at and attempt to find a solution to any problem that a plant or factory may have and do our best to resolve it.

    Our Industrial Maintenance crew is small by design. All of our Industrial Maintenance crew are full time employees and not independent contractors. This gives us the control to make sure that all of our people are constantly drug tested and has received thorough safety training because we know that is important to those in charge of running a smooth operation.

    As with our welders, our industrial maintenance crew’s only priority is the satisfaction of our customers, and we will go to any lengths to make sure that happens.

  • We would like to introduce you to Glass Design, Inc.

    Our name, Glass Design, Inc., does not do a good job of summing us up.  First off, we do not “design glass” in that you’ll never drink your iced tea out of glass we directly designed.  It is, however, a pretty safe bet that if you enjoy a “long-neck” on a hot Saturday afternoon that you are familiar with a product that we help manufacture.  Since 1982 Glass Design has been building, rebuilding and repairing the furnaces that melt the glass for container manufacturers, window glass manufacturers and specialty glass companies.

    Because they similarly involve very high heat and refractory materials, we also have been working on blast furnaces, basic oxygen furnaces, soaking pits, open hearth furnaces, reverbetory furnaces, heat treating furnaces and all types for furnaces for the refining industry. For the aluminum industry we have completed projects on scrap melters, rotary furnaces, induction furnaces, holding furnaces, posts, ladles, crucibles and pouring troughs.

    As a result of our familiarity with refractory materials, providing refractory lining services to manufactures supplying the petroleum industry was a natural outgrowth. We provide a wide variety of castable, gun mix, fiber blanket and modular refractory to manufacturers of fired heaters, stacks, ducts, and thermal oxidizers. Design and installation of anchor systems and refractory material in these units is part of our commitment to our customers to help them meet their customers’ design criteria

    Since the rest of the glass production line is closely tied to the melting furnace and our management started out in the engineering departments of glass companies, it was a natural for Glass Design to install and maintain plant machinery from the earliest beginning of the company. Since 2002 our Texas operation, based in Waxahachie, has been performing industrial maintenance jobs and millwright work for the mineral and petroleum refining industry in north central Texas.

    By their nature, glass furnaces have a limited life because the high temperature molten glass flowing inside the furnace erodes the refractory material that comprises the walls and floor of the furnace. Over the last decade, Glass Design has begun to concentrate on becoming the general contractor on these periodic rebuilds of glass furnaces. We have developed relationships with quality subcontractors that handle the steel fabrication, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing necessary to complete the jobs.

     

    The Glass Industry - General Overview:

    Glass Design, Inc., an individually owned and multidisciplined corporation, has served the glass industry since 1982. Corporate headquarters and operating base are located outside Tulsa in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, making it ideally centralized for producers of glass products throughout the United States and the world. Mobilization of personnel and/or material in and out of the Tulsa area is quickly achieved because of road, rail, air and waterway connections.

    The corporation’s multidisciplines include design, redesign, procurement, installation, repair and start-up, and troubleshooting of all equipment and facilities affiliated with the glass industry.

    Glass Design’s full-time supervisory personnel have a combined service record of over 200 years. A profit sharing program has been implemented from the onset to acknowledge quality workmanship, critical path scheduling, projects completed under or meeting budget costs and teamwork. These quality traits are largely responsible for repeat business, which enables year round employment. Please see listing of Major Projects For The Glass Industry.

    The many years of service to the glass industry has allowed Glass Design’s management team to help their clients achieve their manufacturing goals economically, whether through time-proven or modern electronic design techniques and old or innovative procurement and installation procedures. This type of approach has credited Glass Design with two innovative patents that have helped other clients improve production and quality.

    Glass Design, Inc. would be pleased to discuss and develop detailed needs and requirements for your specific project.
