Paul Wissmach founded the company in 1904, and as Wissmach's history web page states:
Mr. Wissmach had a dream to create beautiful colored rolled sheet glass to inspire stained glass work,
today his dream has been built into the manufacturer of the largest variety of colored rolled sheet glass in the world.
The year 1910 marked an important date in the company's history as it changed
its name to The Paul Wissmach Glass Company, Inc. Mr. Wissmach's dream had finally been realized.
In the early 1960's company officials decided to concentrate on producing the finest colored rolled sheet glass.
Today, over 13,000 square feet of glass is produced in Wissmach's manufacturing facility each day.
On average, eight to ten different color runs of glass are made daily.
Throughout the years, Wissmach Glass has built an inventory that includes over 3,000 colors, tints and patterns.
While preserving the many traditional colors and mixes of the past, Wissmach constantly introduces new colors
and types of glass to meet the demands of the artists of today and the artists of tomorrow.
And with a COE of 94 (excepting the mottled line) Wissmach Glass is beautiful to use for fusing and slumping projects too, as this PDF explains the firing schedule and more!
