About Our Glass Company
First and foremost, we’ve learned that the relationships we have with our customers are what keep us in business. Sure, people love our work, our professionalism, and our availability, but more than anything, they want someone they trust when the need arises. Many of our customers are long-time repeat customers who we know on a first-name basis.
Second, we’ve learned that when we deliver value, everybody wins. We offer the best value in our industry while retaining our unmatched service and availability. We are known as an outstanding glass company in Atlanta. Throughout the years, we have built an impressive list of commercial glass customers which consists of big corporations, local businesses, and local organizations. On the residential side, we have customers throughout the Metro Atlanta area who come in to our shop to pick up a custom piece of glass for their tables, doors, windows, or whatever project they are working on.
You can find A Modern Glass in the Grant Park neighborhood close to Zoo Atlanta and Oakland Cemetery on the corner of Memorial Dr and Boulevard. We have our own private parking lot, so parking is free.
History and Our Key Team Members
In 1968, Delmar Lee Crymes wanted to start a better life for his family, so he moved from Michigan to Atlanta and founded A Modern Glass & Mirror Company. Just two years later, Delmar passed away, and his son, Terry, who was only 18 at the time, immediately took over our glass company along with his mother, Opal Jean Crymes. They ran the company with Geary Wood, a fellow employee who is still working with us today as a lead man.
Opal retired in 1980, and Terry partnered up with George Herron. They have been running this as a partnership since 1980. In 1985, Terry brought his wife, Theresa, to run the office and business affairs. Our other faithful employees are:
- Leon Sanders, Lead Man and Fabricator
- Isaac Emefo, Estimator
- H.L. Pittman and Chris Collier, Lead Man on the field and on service calls
We offer a one-year warranty on closers and our work on insulated units as long as there is no abuse involved.
