Anaheim Glass of Anaheim, Calif., is celebrating its 70th anniversary in business this week.

Anaheim Glass has been in business since July 1945.

Anaheim Glass has been in business since July 1945.

Entrepreneur Nick Wingert launched the company on July 5, 1945. Today, it sells a wide range of glass and glass-related products and services for residential, commercial and automobile glass. It’s still in the original location off South Anaheim Boulevard and Ellsworth Avenue, in the heart of the Anaheim Colony Historic District.

“I’ve seen a lot of changes in Downtown Anaheim over the years,” said Jim Wingert in a statement. “It’s humbling to know that in this historical district, my father, my son and I have created a history of our own, in a place we call home.”

That history includes surviving the Great Recession. Anaheim Glass pushed through the crisis by merging with Brundige Glass, a 45-year-old family-owned business in Orange County.

Anaheim Glass was named the 2012 Small Business of the Year by the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce.
