Connecticut Glass Fabricator Ends OperationsDecember 20th, 2023 by Joshua Huff
Naverra Glass has shuttered its operations after just one year in business.
Connecticut business records show that Jeremy Ozen, the former manager of the Norwich-based glass fabricator, filed a certificate of dissolution in August 2023. Connecticut’s official state website says a business is “shuttered” once a limited liability company successfully files a dissolution. The website adds there will be no additional review, and the company won’t be required to file past-due annual reports.
Naverra started operations in August 2022, focusing on fabricating insulating, laminated and spandrel glass, among others. It emerged following the closure of Solar Seal Architectural, which was supposed to move into the 180,000-square-foot facility that Naverra eventually occupied. Members of Solar Seal’s team owned Naverra.
A former employee, who asked to remain anonymous, says all hourly employees were furloughed in October 2023, with a return date in November. However, hourly employees were notified on Nov. 1, 2023, that they were laid off and salary employees were staying to finish existing orders.
Former director of sales Andrew Kennedy told [DWM] sister publication USGlass magazine in November 2022 that Naverra planned to invest heavily in equipment and quality control and would have the training to match to ensure it provided what it promoted.
