Glass Relocates Corporate Offices and Showroom
Sound Glass of Tacoma, Wash., has relocated and expanded its corporate
office and showroom to a new facility that's located just two blocks
from its previous operations. The company is now operating in more
than 22,000 square feet of space; the retail portion and shop area
each have more than twice the space that they had previously and
the office section is three times the size of the older facility.
company had grown so much we needed more offices, workspace and
warehouse space," says Damon King who handles marketing for
According to King, one of the most exciting aspects of the new
facility is the expanded showroom, which features a switchable glazing
wall that can go from clear to opaque by flipping a switch.
"The new showroom gives us more room to showcase all of the
consumer and commercial products we offer," says King, who
adds that they are now able to display all of the different window
lines they offer, as well as shower doors and enclosures.
The majority of the company's commercial work is done at a separate
fabrication facility a few miles from the new location. So from
the commercial aspect, King says the new facility will serve mainly
as a distribution hub.
In all, Sound Glass has three locations; however there are no definite
plans to expand the others at this time. But King adds, "There
are always discussions about what we can do to become an even more
efficient business environment."
King adds that while the residential retail environment is certainly
a challenge right now, the company is staying focused on community
"We're very active in our community and will continue working
to strengthen those roots," says King.
