Through the looking glass

Domestically oriented and mature, this glassy industry shows a low barrier to entry, if you can see past the initial start up costs and labor intense nature. Transporting large sheets of flat glass can also prove tricky, but dont let that break you in this rather volatile and very low concentrated environment. It is the emergence of new construction technologies that has glazing operators having to upskill in order to contest these segments of the market.
