History

Blue Water Glass was created in 1999 by Dana Ulmer.

 

With humble beginnings, Blue Water Glass started to fabricate and install glass and glazing on HUD projects in Detroit as well as local storefront systems in Port Huron.

 

March of 2002 we incorporated in the state of Michigan and began collaborating with national retail companies like Gap & Victoria’s Secret.

 

2006 we started working with Apple installing stainless steel storefront and glass systems nationwide. Quickly our abilities expanded to not only furnishing labor but also supplying the custom systems retailers designed for their signature brands.

 

2016 we expanded our facility from a 12,000 square foot to 150,000 square foot.

 

2019 celebrated 20 years in business. Blue Water Glass has now grown to over 60 full-time employees consisting of 2 architects, 3 engineers, 7 project managers, 4 estimators & supporting staff to provide dedicated attention to in-house design, engineering, & fabrication.
Blue Water has the ability to take your vision from conception to completion.
