History

Thermoseal Glass Corporation was founded in 1956 by Ira Fine, and his brother-in-law, Irving Newman at its present location in Gloucester City, New Jersey, across the Delaware River from Center City Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Always trying to build a better unit, in 1975, Irv Newman received the company's first patent for an electrically-energized glass panel and circuit breaker combination. With the help of Ira's business acumen and Irv's inventive spirit, these two entrepreneurs grew Thermoseal from a small glass insulator, to a company that produced more than 200,000 insulating Glass units per year.

  • 1996

    • Baypointe Industries, owned by Rick Chubb, acquired Thermoseal shortly after the untimely death of Ira Fine. Over the next several years, the company upgraded its management systems and personnel, computers, and plant equipment to move into the 21st century as an industry leader in insulating glass and door systems.

    • Thermoseal built insulating glass units (IGU's) using a manually-intensive, corner-keyed hollow aluminum spacer assembly method, that created hermetically-sealed IG units primarily using single-seal polysulfide. This was the industry standard.

  • 1997

    • Thermoseal developed the first-ever 100% corrugated shipping wedge for allowing IG units to be shipped on standard float glass racks without shearing the edge sealing system.

  • 1999

    • Thermoseal developed and subsequently patented its ICEglassTM simulated glue-chip, ice-pattern insulating glass product line.

  • 2000

    • Thermoseal developed the first thermally-welded PVC Swing Door for the bottle cooler industry, and was awarded a patent on this technology in 2004.

  • 2004

    • Thermoseal received ISO 9001:2000 Certification, after only 9 months from start-to-finish.

  • 2006

    • Thermoseal changed its name to Thermoseal Industries, LLC to reflect its broadened manufacturing scope. In that same year, Thermoseal started producing Vinyl Welded Doors for the Commercial Refrigeration Market. In March 2007, Thermoseal went into full production of its patent-pending welded PVC sliding glass door system for refrigerated bottle cooler applications.

  • 2007

    • Thermoseal acquired its present 40,000 square foot IG assembly facility conveniently located across the bridge from Philadelphia, PA, the City of Brotherly Love. Including its door production line and warehouse facility located 2 blocks away from its IG factory, Thermoseal operates in approximately 70,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

  • 2008

    • Thermoseal acquired a state-of-the-art automated insulating glass production line. This automated process utilizing SuperSpacer, Thermoseal continues to be on the forefront of warm edge technology.

  • 2010

    • Thermoseal added a new state-of-the-art double-bay, dual-convection flat glass tempering furnace to better serve our customers. We can now temper all types of coated and uncoated glass in varying sizes to better serve our customers, including the highest-performance soft-coat Low-E glass available in North America, in thicknesses ranging from 3mm to 19mm.
