Our Mission Statement:
Jack’s Glass’ Mission is to be the most successful glass
in our industry at delivering the best customer experience
in the markets we serve and to constantly evolve
to serve our customers’ needs, safety and creativity
while being guardians of our earth and giving back to our community.
|From pictures, we can trace the long Braden
family history of working with glass in the Lehigh Valley, beginning with
Jack’s Grandfather, John “Jack” Braden, along with his wife, Mary, starting
in 1914. According to his diaries from the early 1930s, the business was
called Lehigh Glass & Mirror Works, with stores in Bethlehem, Allentown &
Easton. Subsequently, his sons, Carl & William continued the business until
1970, when it was sold to Shatterproof Glass Co. from Detroit, Michigan.
Carl’s son, John (Jack), continued working for the new owners while
attending Moravian College, before moving to Tamaqua, PA and working for
Glass Specialty in Hazleton, Pa for a short time.
On June 9, 1976, Jack and his wife, Donna, decided to marry her passion for
business with his skill for auto & flat glass, forming Jack’s Glass. The
business continues today, serving customers, both in our shop and by mobile
vans in a 20 mile radius of our corporate location at 414-432 N. Madison St.
in Allentown, PA. Our services include glass for vehicles, homes and
business and are more defined on our “Services” page.
We are most proud of our “Excellence in Business” Award from the Lehigh
Valley Chamber of Commerce in 2009, our Award of Merit for our contribution
to highway safety from the City of Allentown, our National Glass Assn.
Business Certification, and numerous Readers’ Choice Awards. Our 37 years of
success have afforded us the opportunity to aid countless charities,
including Toys For Tots, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Leukemia & Lymphoma, Food
Pantries, schools, colleges, community organizations.
We continue to be an advocate for our customers as insurance coverage
becomes more complex and we strive to use the best materials possible. This
coupled with having all NGA Master Certified Technicians, each with decades
of experience with Jack’s Glass, gives us the ability to provide superior

Donna has given countless classes promoting safe driving to high school

seat! Jack’s Glass offers FREE child safety seat events to schools,
community groups, and day care centers.
