D3 Glass is recognized among the Top 50 Glaziers for 2022 in the United States by Glass Magazine, the official publication of the National Glass Association. The top trade publication and longest running ranking for the glass and glazing industry recently ranked D3 Glass and sister-company MY Shower Door No. 38 in the $15-30 million annual sales volume sector.
Glass Magazine’s annual Top 50 Glaziers celebrates its 30th anniversary with this year’s report. The report was first published in 1992 with the goal of highlighting leading U.S. glazing contractors, ranked by sales volume. Over the years, it has also become a market study and health check for the domestic glazing market, presenting leading trends, growth segments, industry headwinds and more. According to the report, Glass Magazine’s 2022 Top 50 Glaziers posted gross sales of an estimated $3.8 billion last year, up from $3.1 billion in 2020, and marking a return to pre-pandemic gross sales.
“What an honor to be recognized among the nation’s highest-ranked companies in the glass industry. We have been in business for over two decades manufacturing and installing frameless shower doors, and very few companies in the U.S. have completed as many jobs and have such high ratings as MY Shower Door. Even under economic challenges, we have been able to grow and succeed. We are so proud to be recognized nationally and to validate the trust and credibility our customers have in our products and our work.”
~ Bill Daubmann, President and Founder of the Fort Myers-based company.
D3 Glass is headquartered in Fort Myers, Florida and employs more than 60 hard-working Americans.
D3 Glass has won several awards in recent years, consistently standing out because of their state-of-the-art design and quality workmanship. The company started in 2012 when the owners of sister-company MY Shower Door decided to delve into manufacturing by opening a glass facility in Fort Myers, FL.
D3 Glass continues its explosive growth in glass fabrication and tempering, allowing the company to manufacture its own glass and expand the company brand over the past several years. The company now makes and installs frameless shower doors for nine Florida MY Shower Door locations as well as other glass shops in Florida, other products include bulletproof glass, decorative glass, wine closets, glass staircases, office partitions and other glass products.
According to Glass Magazine, even in the face of economic setbacks—including the early 2000s recession following the dotcom bubble burst and 9/11, the Great Recession beginning in 2008, and the recent turmoil caused by COVID-19—U.S. glazing market sales continue to trend upward. Additionally, glaziers are adopting new digital tools and software for better project delivery. In this year’s survey, 60 percent of companies report using 3D modeling, and 67 percent of companies report investing in new software during the previous year.
