The Story of Vitrazza 

Circa 2005 in Boulder, CO, a town filled with tech industry whiz kids and high finance gurus, one pioneering glass industry veteran decided to strike out in a business venture that some locals called "crazy" - selling office chair mats made from tempered glass panels to replace cheap vinyl floor mats. But fast forward a few years, he and a partner had established a decent local business selling through a handful of dealers in the area. Customers raved over their custom designs, personal service and how beautiful their office looked with a new Glass Office Chair Mat. This was something new, a quality piece of office furniture brightening up their whole workspace.  

After a couple different ventures to sell these Glass Chair Mats, Robert Livingston and Bill Fitzgerald, were ready to retire. And they had a customer who had contacted them a couple of times about possibly buying their business. In late 2012, that deal came together and Glass Solutions Inc., transformed into Vitrazza. Since then, new President & CEO George Pardo has almost single-handedly developed this idea into a thriving new product category and he's brought to market every new advancement within it; Invisible Shield Pro 15 protective coating, furniture-quality polished edges with a Mini-bevel, Luminoso (tm) Low iron Ultra Clear glass, the Stabil-a-Dot Bumper System (tm), industry-leading packing for nationwide shipping and most recently, the very best possible complement to a Vitrazza Glass Chair Mat, Enso hubless office chair wheels. With a nationwide direct-to-consumer route to market, George has connected with tens of thousands of satisfied customers who hear his radio ads and see him on the company's TV ads.  

Now that idea doesn't look so crazy after all. Our national distribution center in Golden, CO is a beehive of activity everyday supporting a high-growth national eCommerce business with a commitment to quality and American Customer Service. Call anytime to speak to one of our dedicated associates - heck, you might even get George on the phone!
