Under its President Scott Lange, grandson of the founder, Glasfloss has moved aggressively to modernize and expand its manufacturing capacity to better serve growing markets. In 1994, the Wisconsin plant was increased by 25,000 square feet to a total of 65,000 square feet. Between 1995 and 1998, Dallas operations were consolidated, enlarged and modernized in a 120,000 square foot facility, making Glasfloss the largest full-line manufacturer of HVAC filters in the State of Texas.
Additionally, in 1999, Glasfloss consolidated its Ohio operations into a 130,000 square foot facility in Lancaster, Ohio, to improve production efficiencies and lead times. Glasfloss also purchased a 110,000 square foot facility in Reno, Nevada, to serve the West Coast markets and set up warehouse and manufacturing operations in early 1999.
In 2002, Glasfloss purchased a modern 80,000 square foot facility located in Jacksonville, Florida. This facility serves the thriving Southeast markets and improves lead times and shipping costs for customers in that region. In 2023, the Jacksonville Plant expansion project added an additional 30,000 square feet and 13 new dock doors which enhanced manufacturing and shipping capacities as well as an improved work environment for our employees.
In 2016, Glasfloss purchased a 423,000 square foot facility in DeSoto, Texas. The Dallas plant and corporate office headquarters were relocated to this newer modern facility which adds additional manufacturing, warehouse and dock space to better serve our growing markets in the future.
In 2023, Glasfloss Industries restructured the Corporation into a 100% employee owned and operated Employee Stock Ownership Plan. The ESOP Corporation provides our employees with a greater role in growth and success for the future and reduces uncertainty by strengthening our workforce and our commitment to the air filtration industry.
Today, Glasfloss stands poised to lead the industry into the 21st Century the same way it started over 80 years ago: by furnishing the special needs of the air filtration industry with quality products, competitive prices, and reliable on-time delivery.
