Glass company here has family tie to big airport job

Date: 17 October 2011
ST. LOUIS • When the landmark main terminal was built at then-Lambert Field in the 1950s, Jane Hilboldt's father-in-law oversaw the window glazing as a manager for Stanley Hanks Glass Co.

Earlier this year, after a tornado blew out more than 300 of those panes of plate glass, Lambert officials accepted bids for the massive repair job. In the end, it selected Hilboldt Curtainwall Inc. — a company Jane and her husband, Denny, co-own.

Typically, the company employs 44 people, including carpenters and ironworkers, depending on workload, backlogs and when they are in the field.

"It was a hard-bid job," Jane Hilboldt said.

Jane Hilboldt was previously a vice president in mortgage banking at Town and Country Mortgage Co.

The Hilboldts started their company in 2005. Jane wrote the business plan to start Hilboldt Curtainwall Inc. She said the company obtained the right to a proprietary curtainwall system that Denny Hilboldt helped develop and had been using since 1988.

Denny has been in the business all his life. Among the jobs they are working on are Patient Tower B at Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Creve Coeur and the Regional Cancer Center at Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau.
