A significant part of the history of the stained glass industry in the United States over the past 120 years belongs to Willet Hauser Architectural Glass Inc. while more recently, Associated Crafts® has contributed to industry innovation.
One of the oldest in North America, Willet Hauser Architectural Glass® was formed through the merger of two American stained glass studios: The Willet Stained Glass Studio of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the Hauser Art Glass Company Inc., located in Winona, Minnesota. When the two united in 1977 they formed one of the largest stained glass studios in the world.
In 2005, the company changed its name to Willet Hauser Architectural Glass Inc. to more accurately reflect the long-term direction of the studio.
In 2014, the company was purchased by another prominent stained glass family, the Phillips, owners of Associated Crafts®. The Phillips have over 40 years experience in innovating in the industry from traditional practices to unique improvements.
Today, the collective company specializes in complete restoration, repair, preservation, conservation and new creations. From window inspection for insurance and historical documentation purposes to restoration and covering for those windows, Willet Hauser Architectural Glass® & Associated Crafts® is a full-service provider.
