Focus on the Customer
Syracuse Glass has grown substantially over the last century. But at our core, we are still a family-owned, independent distributor and fabricator. Operationally and practically speaking, this enables us to sustain our business philosophy…a customer relationship rather than a "job" focused company. Our customer relationships span decades and generations! Repeat business from these satisfied customers is the foundation that underlies our success and longevity. We try to improve these valued relationships day in and day out, job after job, year after year by being responsive, helpful, honest and accountable.

Everyone at Syracuse Glass, including management, sales personnel, customer service representatives, estimators, fabricators, administrative staff and truck drivers are committed to treating our customers like guests in our homes. We make it habit to know our customers by name, not by account number.

A Company with Heart
The James Dwyer Jr. Memorial fund, a part of the CNY Community Foundation, was established in September 1998 at the time of Jim's sudden and unexpected death from cardiac arrest. Initially, the fund purchased and sponsored training for Automatic External Defibrillators (AED's) for many public gathering places. Currently this donor-advised fund endows an annual scholarship at Corcoron High School and supports many worthwhile community efforts. Syracuse Glass profits provide a good share of the fund's resources.

How Fast is Fast? The Truck's Here!

Syracuse Glass is the service leader from Dunkirk to Delmar, and from Malone to Monticello. Our lead times are frequently the best you will find. We sustain an intensive delivery schedule by keeping our 12 transports on the road. Field measured items and job-site breakage are more easily and inexpensively obtained from Syracuse Glass than from remote companies that focus primarily on large projects. We are set up to serve!




Jim Dwyer, a longtime leader of Syracuse Glass Co., passed away Aug. 5 after a battle with a chronic lung condition, Jim started at Syracuse Glass Co. in 1960 in a sales position, and went on to run the company. Jim Dwyer and his wife Kathleen bought Syracuse Glass in 1979. Back in the day, they were known as ‘Jim and Mrs. Dwyer,’ when Jim handled the management and sales roles, and Kathleen collected the accounts receivable, Those were tough times, with a recession and high interest rates. But together, they made it work. Jim Dwyer was also a leader in developing energy-efficient products. Energy efficiency is a big deal now, but Jim got Syracuse Glass into the manufacture of energy-efficient insulating glass back in 1972.
