A Clear Choice for New York
Family-run glass and glazing specialist, Alpha Glass Corp., brings expertise and customer care to the five boroughs and beyond
Family owned and operated Alpha Glass Corp. prides itself on providing quality glass and glazing solutions throughout the five boroughs and Long Island. Living up to its apt tagline, “We Glass New York,” the Long Island City-based company furnishes and installs a vast array of customized products for both commercial buildings and residential homes. From initial design, to fabrication, assembly and installation, Alpha Glass does it all.
Founder, Owner and President of Alpha Glass, Antonis (Tony) Farozes, proudly shares, “Since I started the company in 2010, we have built our reputation to become one of the best-known names in the industry.”
Experience Pays Off
With 20 years of experience in the glass business, in roles ranging from project manager to mechanic to glazer, Tony questioned why he should work for someone else when he could go out on his own. It was then that he added the role of entrepreneur and started Alpha Glass. Then, a year later, he partnered with a friend and fellow mechanic from the industry, Argyrios (Archie) Merousis, who is now a Co-Owner and Vice President.
Tony says of his team of 17, which includes his two sons, “We hold ourselves up to the highest of standards, and have been in the industry since 2000. We’ve cultivated an immense amount of knowledge from years of experience both in manufacturing and installation of glass and aluminum products.”
New York’s Go-To Choice for Glass Solutions
Working mostly in the commercial and government markets, Alpha Glass provides just about any glass-related service you can imagine for projects big and small, including custom shower enclosures, mirrors, store fronts, curtain walls, interior glass partitions, and windows and doors.
Tony reflects on what makes Alpha Glass truly stand out as a clear, go-to choice in the New York market. He shares, “Not only are we family owned and operated, but I don’t consider myself a boss. I’m a mechanic. I’m the one who measures; I’m the fabricator; and I stay on top of every job. I also have cultivated very good relationships with the designers, architects and the customers we partner with. Because I have been in the industry for so many years, people know me and they know their job will be done the right way. With most of the big companies, they sub out the jobs. That’s one of the reasons I decided to open my own company. I wanted to control the quality of work.”
That attention to quality has paid off, as most of the projects Alpha Glass does comes from recommendations and repeat business. Customers know that they can trust Tony and the team to give a solid opinion on the right way to do things and the right materials to use on any given job.
