OVER A CENTURY OF BEAUTIFUL WORK
Transforming the stained glass industry in the United States
Wiliam and Ann Willet incorporated the Willet Stained glass in Pittsburgh PA. For nearly 80 years Willet Stained Glass created new windows for some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions such as West Point Military Academy.
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 of innovation in the industry from traditional practices to unique improvements.
Today, the 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, Associated Crafts® & Willet Hauser® is a full-service provider.
And that’s just a glimpse into our history!
