Our Story


Glassworks opened May 1, 1989 in Decaturville, TN when Bob Crawley moved back to his home in Decatur County, three months after leaving the U.S. Navy, and a brief stay at General Glass in Memphis.  At the time Decatur County did not have a full service glass shop that offered mobile service.  Bob noticed a need for this type of business in the area, so Glassworks was started.


After a very successful start in Decaturville, we relocated to Parsons, TN in 1991 and after one year, built a new 3,500 sq. ft. building located at 485 Florida Ave., N,, behind Fred's Dollar Store and Ace hardware.  This location has given Bob, Debbie and thier staff the facilities they needed to provide quality and reasonably priced service to all their customers. 

Bob married  Debbie Gatlin from Waverly Tn. in 1994 and she joined Glassworks in 1995 and brought with her 11 years experience as Executive Director of the Humphreys County Chamber of Commerce, and shared that same care for the customer that makes a company grow. 


Over the past THIRTY  years, Glassworks has enjoyed tremendous growth with the support of Decatur and surrounding counties, and looks forward to serving these customers in the future. Glassworks prides itself in helpling its customers with any questions or projects they have, and giving them the service they deserve.


Glassworks attributes its growth and success to its "quality work for a fair price" motto. Glassworks handles major accounts for local industries, school systems, hospitals, construction companies and many other types of businesses in the area. Many contractors in the area use Glassworks for all their mirrors installations, shower enclosures and those custom jobs that only Glassworks can handle. We try to always keep our appointments and if not we let you know why. Our philosophy is "treat the customer as you wish to be treated".      


In 2018 Glassworks completed a major expantion to it's facility more than doulbling its floor space and square footage. We completed our new storefront fabrication shop to better serve our larger accounts which enable us to cut fabrication time in half for our customers, allowing faster delivery time to the job. This new shop space also enables us to store fabricated jobs until the project is ready. 


Glassworks continues to grow with it's customers and works all over the Southeast. We look forward to serving our many great customers for the next 30 Years!
