Martino Glass Company was incorporated in 1966 by John Martino as a glass shop which provided glass services to area residents and businesses. He built an excellent reputation by providing quality work and service in the community.
In October of 1980, Tom O'Brien, whom at the time was employed at Martino's, bought the company from John. Long before being employed at Martino's, Tom's background was primarily in carpentry, working for both himself and numerous other carpenters. He saw an opportunity in Martino Glass to expand its services and he worked diligently over the next 37 years to do just that. He worked both in the office and in the field, never hesitating to jump in if the crew needed an extra hand. His thirst for knowledge was endless. He brought new products to the area, managed a Portal fabrication plant, and defined Martino's by not only the quality of workmanship but generously donating his time and services to many local non-profits.
In 2011, Tom provided an internship in the office to Ashley Alter. The following March, he hired her full time. Following in Tom's footsteps, she learned all aspects of the front office and business, and then during a particularly busy summer, she asked to become an estimator to take some work off Tom's desk. Tom always found it amusing to tell the story of how they ended up partners, jokingly saying, "Anyone who asks me for more work, but not more money, can have it!" After discovering she too had a passion for the industry, Tom made her a partner in 2015. In 2017, Tom passed away unexpectedly. The team Tom and Ashley put in place rebounded together, Ashley purchased the business, and, with an eye to the customers, employees, and community, continues to run the business the way Tom would have wanted.
