Glassline® has come a long way from our humble beginnings of building double edgers in 1970. Our glass processing plant started in Toledo, Ohio with pioneering spirit and just seven employees on our team. You can be certain we have learned a few things over the last 50 years. Our product line has grown to include machines for nearly every facet of glass fabrication. And speaking of facets(sort of), we also produce diamond tools right here in our Perrysburg facility. Though the GLASSLINE CORPORATION family now consists of several divisions(packaging, food, bottling, and more), serving worldwide clientele, our core values remain the same: Focus on delivering Customer value through superior designs, and quality at reasonable prices.
Our facilities perform a large variety of services, saving you costs by allowing you to deal with one supplier. These services include:
1970: Glassline Corporation begins with 7 employees and $50,000 to start up. Total sales exceeded to $160,000 by the end of the year.
1973: Total sales reach $1,000,000.
1981: Glassline Corporation headquarters moves to Perrysburg, Ohio as it continues to expand.
1986: Chicago-based diamond tooling manufacturer is acquired, which will move to Perrysburg in 1993. Also, InteliCon is formed, to manufacture electrical panels for in-house use as well as local firms.
1992: Acquisition of System Packaging, a world leading manufacturer in cold and heat seal packaging machines.
1994: Acquisition of SIMCO, a manufacturing company specializing in centrifugal liquid/solid separation machines.
1997: A boring mill is purchased and manufacturing space is expanded to 12,000 square feet. The strategic purchase gives Glassline the ability to machine very large weldments.

2003: Design staff harness the new engineering power of Autodesk Inventor, a 3D design software for industrial applications.
