Alex Glass and Glazing -- How we got here.
Mike Sahli here with Alex Glass and Glazing, I am a 3rd generation glass man. I’ve been working with my dad at this glass shop now for 5 years and have loved every second of it. But enough about me, like I said I am a 3rd generation of my family in this business so I’m still in the beginning stages. It all stated with my Grandpa, Virgil Sahli. He started his glass career with Harmon Glass Company; where he learned and mastered the skills needed to become a glass expert. In 1969 Virgil Opened up his own glass company, Red Wing Glass in Red Wing, MN. In 1989 Ron and his brother Don purchased the glass shop and took the shop to the next level and continuing to provide quality service and products. As time went on Ron stumbled upon the next best thing, a glass shop in God’s country -- Alexandria, MN. Where in July of 1999 Ron purchased a seasoned glass shop from Ed Niland, Alex Glass and Glazing. It reminded Ron of the shop he grew up in Red Wing with their great reputation, quality work, and expert craftsmanship. Which is now the shop that I grew up in, learning everything from the master himself. I am looking forward to carrying on this amazing skill that has been passed down the generations and serving the Alexandria area with the premium service we pride our company on.
