At its meeting last night, the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners recognized Tri-City Glass & Mirror of Eden for its 70th anniversary of being in business. The locally owned and operated company provides glass and mirror products for the residential and commercial markets throughout North Carolina, southern Virginia and portions of West Virginia.
Tri-City Glass & Mirror was originally established in the “Draper” area of Eden in 1949 by the Martin brothers. They moved the company to its current location on Stadium Drive and named it Tri-City after the three small mill towns that formed the City of Eden.
Current owner Dana Hussey and his brothers acquired the company in 1985. Hussey took full ownership of Tri-City Glass in 1991 and has been leading the company since then with a staff of about 10 full-time employees.
“Customer service, superior workmanship and quality products sums up our success for 70 years,” said Dana Hussey, owner and president of Tri-City Glass & Mirror. “This is a great place to do business. The people of Eden and Rockingham County have been very good to us over the years and we are forever grateful for their support. ”
Tri-City Glass & Mirror makes products for a variety of residential and commercial uses. Residential products range from custom glass showers, auto glass and mirrors, sunrooms, awnings and canopies, to bathroom and gym mirrors, glass table tops, replacement windows, insulated glass, and more.
In recent years, Sheetz has been one of the company’s largest commercial customers. Tri-City Glass & Mirror has furnished and installed store fronts for over 100 Sheetz stores in North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. The company has also provided products for more than 50 remodeled McDonald’s restaurants in North Carolina and Virginia.
Hussey says he is semi-retired but has set the company on a secure path for the third generation. His son Dustin came on board in 2012 as vice president and is now in charge of the day-to-day operations.
“On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, congratulations to Tri-City Glass & Mirror and its dedicated employees for reaching this milestone. We thank Dana and the entire company for their commitment to doing business in Rockingham County for the last 70 years,” said Reece Pyrtle, chairman of the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners. “We hope to see them have many more years of success here in Rockingham County.”
