Headquartered in Saginaw, Michigan, USA, Glastender, Inc. was established in 1969 when our founder and CEO, Jon D. Hall invented the world’s first automatic rotary glasswasher. The cutting-edge glasswasher design saved space and eliminated wasted steps for bartenders.
The second automatic rotary glasswasher sold was incorporated into a pass-thru cocktail station. The innovative station design allowed bartenders and servers to work as a team, doubling bartender output.
Jon pioneered a sense of creativity, flexibility, and feature focus that continues to be ingrained in the culture of our family business to this day. Our enthusiasm for developing new products to meet customer needs has contributed to the tremendous expansion of our product line. We now manufacture a complete line of quality bar equipment and several specialty food service products.
