how we started

Our Story

Express Glass Packaging and Hwa Hsia Glass collaborated with Owens Illinois to assume Owen’s Fast From Stock (FFS) program on items produced by Hwa Hsia Glass. In doing so, we purchased the entire FFS inventory in order to rebuild this program. Express Glass will continue to build inventory levels in line with our customers’ needs.

What Sets Us Apart

The Express Glass Difference


In Stock

If you need glass fast, we have it! Traditional glass orders can be synonymous with long lead times, while waiting for a mold to run. At Express Glass, we strive to maintain inventory levels. All of our items are typically in stock and ship within 24 hours of receiving a PO.

Service Excellence

We care about your experience. Express Glass strives to process orders professionally and in an expedited manner.


With over 40 years of experience in the glass industry, President and Managing Director Grover Dixon adds a level of expertise to Express Glass that you don’t often find.

Quality Glass

Express Glass produces your ware in a Hwa Hsia Factory on a very defined production line, specifically set up to produce glass that meets all USA glass standards. This includes imported sand, refined cullet, automated inspection and assurance of meeting all EPA regulations for heavy metals.
