The Glass Factory Directory, published each year, lists each of the glass manufacturing locations in Canada, Mexico and the United States. Each listing gives the plant address, telephone number, fax number, the name of a contact person and a brief list provided to us by the company of the products they make.

Glass companies are listed in the Glass Factory Directory without charge. We do not list glass artists or studios. The Directory is published by LJV Inc., dba Glass Factory Directory and the National Glass Budget. Our costs are paid by advertising sales and sales of the Directory.

Answers to your most frequently asked questions (FAQ)

funny man

  • Most glass factories sell directly only in very large quantities, usually 50,000 items or more. Glass items produced in North America are usually available in smaller quantities from distributors.
  • We do not recommend specific glass manufacturers or glass distributors for any glass product.
  • We do not always know who made a specific item you may have, as it may be marked with a trademark with which we are not familiar.
  • We specialize in North American manufacturers, and do not have information on manufacturers in other parts of the world.

  • We can consider questions not addressed by these guidelines. Email us or call us: (516) 481-2188.
