Founded in 1946 as the Koolvent Metal Awning Company, Glassmaster Company is known worldwide for developing and manufacturing the finest extruded monofilaments, fishing and cutting line (Monofilaments), abrasive nylon monofilaments (Nybrad), flexible control cables, switch panels, electronic test equipment (Controls), and the Modular T-slotted Composite Framework System (Composites). Three hundred process engineers, marketing specialists, management personnel and produc tion technicians are employed at Lexington, South Carolina, and Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Two separate divisions currently exist: Glassmaster Monofilament (founded 1982) and Glassmaster Controls (purchased from Speareflex in 1988). The Nybrad product line, directed by the Monofilament Division, was acquired from Allied Signal in 1988. The Composites line, which is a part of the Controls Division was established in 1982

All products in Glassmaster’s diverse offering are made proudly in the USA. In 1959, Glassmaster converted to a public corporation, and its stock is traded on the over-the-counter market under the OTC-Bulletin Board symbol GLMA.OB.

~“Our Versatility is at Your Service”

At Glassmaster Controls, we engineer products for specific applications and make them the best that can be made - whether we manufacture five hundred or five million pieces. Using our Unified Systems Approach, we continue to improve the product and our service to our customers - through constant attention to quality, cost, & delivery.

Our 110,000 square foot, climate-controlled facility is strategically located halfway between Detroit and Chicago, within the automotive manufacturing supply base of the world - a position that links us to the cost-effective materials and technological innovations of the industry.

Utilizing our vertically integrated manufacturing, we are able to produce our own components and assemble mechanical and electronic control systems in-house, resulting in maximum control of quality, cost, and delivery which benefits us, as well as our customers.

~In Search of Excellence

The success of Glassmaster Monofilament can be traced directly to our total dedication to Research and Development. We are continually searching for, testing and exploring new products and improving existing ones for the highly specialized needs of our customers. It is a never ending process, one we approach with the simple goal of discovering a better product and how to produce it at a better price.
Our commitment to R&D requires close partnerships with chemical companies. Specialty polymers are brought in on a regular basis, extruded and tested under a complete confidentiality basis. It also means working in concert with customers. Since we extrude mainly specialty monofilaments, we invite requests for new and unusual applications. To Glassmaster, opportunity lies in the unknown.

Glassmaster assures consistency with every order -- a consistently superior product, consistent personal service and a consistently competitive price. Our customers rely on our ability to perform and we do, time and again

Some manufacturers oversell and their customers suffer. By staying within our capacity and capabilites, we are seldom caught short and can always supply what we commit. To meet the demands for just-in-time deliveries, additional capacity was recently added to our plant. Plans for future expansion will be put into action as business expands.

From product development to manufacturing to delivery, you can rely on Glassmaster Monofilament Division. Mastering opportunities... for customers like you.
