Technical Glass Home



Technical Glass Products was founded by Peter Portone in 1960 and incorporated in 1961. With a strong background in machining and metallurgy, Pete had been a propeller specialist on the aircraft carrier Bonhomme Richard in WWII. After the war, Pete worked as a gear machinist, before moving into the glass industry, where he worked for
5 years as the head of the medical glass department for Hordis Brothers Glass Co. in Philadelphia. Pete saw a need for the manufacture of smaller glass parts for the emerging electronics, medical and aerospace industries, and eventually started his own company in the basement of his home.


Over the years, Technical Glass has moved from Peter's basement, to Philadelphia, to Trevose, Pa. to its present location in Ivyland, Pa. Truly a family business, Peter is joined by many family members in all aspects of the company, including the director of sales, his son-in-law John J. Hasson, Sr., and the head of manufacturing, his nephew Joseph M. Sweeney, Jr.


Today, Technical Glass Products is proud to supply the aerospace, medical research, photonics and electronics industries with the highest quality glass parts. Over the past 45 years, we have prided ourselves on personal attention, competitive pricing and fast delivery of orders. We are always happy to work with research and engineering departments to discuss new projects.
