Not only surviving, but thriving as a family-owned company

“We shouldn’t have to conform our business to fit the software, and FeneVision allows us that flexibility.” Businesses today are faced with all kinds of challenges.  Simply surviving the competitive landscape that exists is tough enough, but actually thriving in it requires something extra. By focusing on the right combination of people and technology, United Plate Glass has done just that—and then some. Located just northeast of Pittsburgh in Butler, Pennsylvania, United Plate Glass (UPG) is a family-owned and-operated company whose extraordinary growth throughout the past two decades has necessitated not only the addition of two new buildings, but the creation of a second facility in Lincolnton, North Carolina.  From their start as an auto glass and boxed glass distributor, they moved into glass fabrication, and are at present a successful, full-fledged, state-of-the-art glass manufacturing facility.
